A sound does not view itself as thought, as ought, as needing another sound for its eludication, as etc.; it has no time for any consideration – it is occupied with the performance of its characteristics: before it has died away it must have made perfectly exact its frequency, its loudness, its length, its overtone structure, the precise morphology of these and of itself.

John Cage, Silence, 1939

Painting isn’t made for the decoration of apartments: it is a weapon to be used offensively and defensively against the enemy.

Pablo Picasso, 1935
