 Signs placed on freeways around the San Francisco Bay Area, quotations by Brian Eno.

 "Rationality is what we do to organize the world, to make it possible to predict. Art is the rehearsal for the failure of that process."

"Avant-garde music is a sort of research music. You're glad someone's done it, but you don't necessarily want to listen to it. It's similar to the way I'm very happy people have gone to the North Pole.  It extends my concept of the planet to know it exists, but I don't want to live there... or even go there actually."

"The reason conservatives cohere and radicals fight is that everyone agrees about fears, no one about visions."
"Nearly all the things I do that are of any merit at all start off just being good fun."
 " Composition is a way of living out your philosophy and calling it art."

"Cooking is a way of listening to the radio."

"I'm always grumbling when I produce, but it's the people who are dissatisfied that get things changed."
 "As struggles go, being an artist isn't that much of one."
