"I don't believe in peace either. I used to think, 'Love and Peace.' But now I have changed my mind about that. I have a new philosophy. It's this: I believe that I am an agent put here to maintain the aspect of equipoise in the universe, the balance of nature. That means warmth and cold, night and day, light and darkness, order and chaos, good and evil, there's a reason for those things being, and I do whatever I can to maintain that.
For example, before you came, I ripped up that Life magazine. it came in the mail today, and I destroyed it by ripped out things that I wanted. Now tomorrow I might destroy an idea and the day after I might destroy a person. I believe that in order for life to endure there has to be movement and change. Static is death. Motion is life. So every day I create something, a drawing, some writing, something new. And in order to maintain that balance, I'll destroy something. After you've done it for a while, you begin to see signs that something will be to be destroyed."
Jim Steranko, quoted in the article "Face Front! Clap Your Hands, You're on the Winning Team!"
