  5. “Everybody has their own America,… a fantasy that they think is out there [but it is] pieced… together from scenes in movies and music and lines from books. And you live in your dream America that you’ve custom-made from art and schmaltz and emotions as much as you live in your real one.” –Andy Warhol
