I lived a very isolated life. When you start at 20, you have a lot of nonsense to work out of your system.
Edie Sedgwick
You care enough, that you want your life to be fulfilled in a living way, not in a painting way, not in a writing way… you really do want it to be involving in living, corresponding with other living objects, moving, changing, that kind of thing.
Edie Sedgwick
