Famous quotes containing the word ono:
“Everybodys an artist. Everybodys God. Its just that theyre inhibited. I believe in people so much that if the whole of civilization is burned so we dont have any memory of it, even then people will start to build their own art. It is a necessitya function. We dont need history.”
—Yoko Ono (b. 1933)
