“I was a bad boy in school primarily because I couldn’t read well, because I’m dyslexic. And the only thing I could read was poetry till I was 22 and I started to read novels. But you know, poetry kept me in the world of language.”

“I’ve never had an easy relationship with critics. I hold a lot of homicide in my heart.”
Jim Dine, born June 16, 1935
