"I always tend to see the funny sides of things. To me, the richest experience is when it’s laughter and tears together. And I know that sounds very Jewish, and perhaps that’s part of the Jewish kind of humor I was brought up with. It’s like endless humor...and at the same time it’s 'Oy!'"
- Eleanor Antin
