Christo and Jeanne-Claude quotes :
We tell them that we believe it will be beautiful because that is our specialty, we only create joy and beauty. We have never done a sad work. Through the drawings, we hope a majority will be able to visualize it.Christo and Jeanne-Claude
And for me, the real world involves everything: risk, danger, beauty, energy, all we meet with in the real world.Christo
