Georgia O'Keeffe's books & letters

audio, video & other media


"One day I found myself saying to myself, 'I can't live where I want to. I can't even say
what I want to!' I decided [that] I was a very stupid fool not to at least paint as I wanted to."

"Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small. We haven't time – and to see takes time
like to have a friend takes time."

"My painting is what I have to give back to the world for what the world gives to me."
