I was never a good fundraiser.

我从来都不是一个好的筹款人。

艾格尼丝·冈德

I have the same sense of discovery and exhilaration from objects of design and everyday use - I am inspired by the buildings in my city, by park greenery and dazzling store windows, by the jaunty strollers and umbrellas and billboards I walk past. Just strolling our streets, we encounter creativity every single day.

我对设计和日常使用的物品有着同样的发现感和兴奋感——我的灵感来自我所在城市的建筑、公园的绿化和耀眼的商店橱窗、我走过的欢快的婴儿车、雨伞和广告牌。漫步街头,我们每天都会遇到创造力。

艾格尼丝·冈德

I'm so lucky in my life, but I'm so unlucky in my abilities. I love art so much, but I'm unable to produce it. I can't even draw a dog that doesn't look like a horse.

我一生很幸运,但我的能力却很不幸。我非常喜欢艺术,但我不能创作。我连一只看起来不像马的狗都不会画。

艾格尼丝·冈德

In my own life, I share my home with works by artists like Elizabeth Murray, Martin Puryear, Jackie Windsor and so many others, whose creativity is clear and fresh and compelling; the works break through the usual, and they inspire creativity; they inspire responses and understanding.

在我自己的生活中,我与伊丽莎白默里、马丁·珀伊尔、杰基·温莎等艺术家的作品分享我的家,他们的创作清晰、新鲜、引人注目;作品突破常规,激发创造力;它们激发了人们的反应和理解。

The need we have for information is great, and we get it from many admirable sources. The need we have for understanding and acceptance is much greater. The arts are uniquely able to help us meet the greater needs.

我们对信息的需求是巨大的,我们从许多令人钦佩的来源获得信息。我们更需要理解和接受。艺术能够帮助我们满足更大的需要。

I'm hoping someday that we'll be able to start a consortium with places like Carnegie Hall to work on early childhood education. I really feel that's the most important place to put the arts.

我希望有一天,我们能够与卡内基音乐厅这样的地方建立一个联盟,致力于幼儿教育。我真的觉得那是艺术最重要的地方。

艾格尼丝·冈德

Most of the art I have is more on the beautiful side than the violent or disturbing side.

我所拥有的大部分艺术都是美丽的一面,而不是暴力或令人不安的一面。
