"The skeins of wool are a friendly refuge, like a web or a cocoon. The caterpillar gets the silk from his mouth, builds his cocoon and when it is completed he dies. The cocoon has exhausted the animal. I am the cocoon. I have no ego. I am my work." (Quote cited in Meyer-Thoss, Christiane. "Louise Bourgeois: Designing for Freel Fall." Zurich: Ammann Verlag, 1992, p. 197.)
