Quote of the Day/Week- Salvador Dali
We thus turn our attention to the great Spanish surreal painter Salvador Dali (1904-1989) who is perhaps best-known for "The Persistence of Memory" (1931), which is the painting with melting clocks. Dali is also one of the people who has his very own plush toy from the Unemployed Philosophers Guild, which retails for circa $17.95. This month, we are also quoting individuals who have plush toys made in their image as was the case with Frida Kahlo, the Mexican painter who was the subject of our last quote entry.
A museum dedicated to Dali's works is located in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Over the weekend, Spain tied Italy 1-1 in the team's first Euro 2012 game.
Here is Dali's quote:
"I don't do drugs. I am drugs."
