"I am a perfectionist. When I take a picture, if it's a murder or it's a drunk, it has gotta be good." -Weegee
"In my particular case I didn't wait till somebody gave me a job or something - I went and created a job for myself; freelance photographer. And what I did anybody else can do." - Weegee
“I have no chips on my shoulder. I like to be constructive. As I have said, I have inspired many persons to take up photography. As a matter of fact, I inspire myself." - Weegee
