Business Quotes by Charles Saatchi Business Quotes by British Advertising leader Charles Saatchi

I don't buy art in order to leave a mark or to be remembered; clutching at immortality is of zero interest to anyone sane.

Then he can sell anything he touches.

I don't have a romantic attachment to what could have been. If I had kept all the work I had ever bought it would feel like Kane sitting in Xanadu surrounded by his loot. It's enough to know that I have owned and shown so many masterpieces of modern times.
Charles Saatchi - Art Collecting

Nobody can give you advice after you've been collecting for a while. If you don't enjoy making your own decisions, you're never going to be much of a collector anyway.
