Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and Back)
 

Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, ‘so what’.
’My mother didn’t love me.’ So what.
’My husband won’t ball me.’ So what.
’I’m a success but I’m still alone.’ So what.
I don’t know how I made it through all the years before I learned how to do that trick. It took a long time for me to learn it, but once you do, you never forget.
— Andy Warhol

The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and back), is full of great quotes and is such a fun and easy read, one I've been meaning to read since high school. It is filled with his blatant yet superficial thoughts and truisms that reflect his confidence and humor as a person and character. One of my favorite parts of the book is under the Economics section, where he talks about impressing the plant man and appearing rich by leaving the apartment door slightly open so people can see all the plants, though not rich enough to be robbed. His thoughts on the transportation of scent memory and rich people who dress poor are also great. He has a lot of funny quotes in this book, but the quote above, I feel, is one of the more appropriate ones for this post because it's like a slap in the face or a good shake in the shoulders to get you to stop wallowing in whatever situation you're in, because seriously, why are you doing that?
