“…I looked around the studio and it was all Marilyn and disasters and death. I said, ‘Andy, maybe it’s enough death now.’ He said, ‘What do you mean?’ I said, ‘Well, how about this?’ I opened a magazine to four flowers.”

H. Geldzahler quoted in T. Sherman and D. Dalton, POP: The Genius of Andy Warhol, New York, 2009, p. 235


"…Guardai intorno nel suo studio e vedevo solo Marylin e disastri e morte. Dissi, ‘Andy, forse è il momento di dire basta morte ora.’ Lui disse, ‘Che intendi?’ Io risposi, ‘Beh, che ne dici di questo?’ Ed aprii una rivista con quattro fiori.”
