Andy Warhol的十五句名言

全世界把商業藝術化、藝術商業化做得淋漓盡緻,如果只能選一人,中選的一定是安迪沃荷(Andy Warhol)。趁著他的循迴展熱,過年期間來一點輕鬆的主題,本期「企業英語教室」我們就帶著”business mind”,欣賞這個把膚淺發揮到最深沈的普普教父。你讀他的quotes:
 ” Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. “每個人都能當上15分鐘的名人
 “Life is like down was kidnapped and then sold into slavery. “人生下來就像被綁架,然後被賣去當奴隸。”
然後再看看,台北滿街頭上掛著的絲網版畫《瑪麗蓮夢露》上一遍遍複製的笑容,體驗一下那種單調、無聊和重複。 再唸這一句句英文,唸出聲音,商業和藝術交錯著分不出誰是誰的英文。

5. People sometimes say that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually it's the way things happen to you in life that's unreal. The movies make emotions look so strong and real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it's like watching television -- you don't feel anything.

15. What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest.
