Grant Wood Quotations

All the really good ideas I ever had came to me while I was milking a cow. -- Grant Wood Quote

In making these paintings, as you may have guessed, I had in mind something which I hope to convey to a fairly wide audience in America -- the picture of a country rich in the arts of peace; a homely lovable nation, infinitely worth any sacrifice necessary to its preservation. -- Grant Wood Quote
