"I fell in love with art the first time I saw it in person at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. First of all, it was exquisite. But I also saw myself in it. I was tall, gangly, skinny, with long dark hair. I didn't use makeup. Then I would see a John Singer Sargent picture of a girl in a white dress and straggly hair, or Modigliani's nudes that were so skinny, or Sienese primitives, the Madonnas, and I identified with their body language." -- Patti Smith
