“Every time the economy goes south, art grows. If you were an actuary or an accountant you’d consider those years horrid, but if you were an artist, you’d consider them magic.”
Marc Spitz, Bowie: A Biography

“Bowie sat down for an interview with his Hunger costar Susan Sarandon and explained, “When you’re young and you’re determined to crack the big dream of ‘I have a big statement and the world needs to hear my statement,’ there’s something a bit irresponsible about your attitude to the future. A nonrecognition that the future exists. I think it’s important for youth to have that. My son keeps me remembering that there is a tomorrow.”
Marc Spitz, Bowie: A Biography

“The only thing scarier than death is the disappearance from youth.”
Marc Spitz
