Texas Quote

I couldn't believe Texas was real. When I arrived there, there wasn't a blade of green grass or a leaf to be seen, but I was absolutely crazy about it. There wasn't a tree six inches in diameter at the time. For me Texas is the same big wonderful thing that the oceans and the highest mountains are.
- Georgia O'Keefe
