One day they will open a museum dedicated to me and at the heart of it will be my relationship with my wife

One day they will open a museum dedicated to me, and at the heart of it will be my relationship with my wife, the way the really moving heart of the Magritte Museum is his lifelong love affair with his wife Georgette, and the photos of the two of them together are really so much more affecting than any of the paintings. My museum will store all our email conversations, all the voicemail messages from her I saved on dictaphone, all the little souvenirs, cards, I kept from her. When historians and biographers of the future really want to find out about me, at the centre of me they will find her. She is the sun at the centre of my solar system.

When they come to make the museum of my life

When they come to make the museum of my life, of course there will be all my books, all my manuscripts, but all around it will be pictures of my wife. The great beauty of my life, the great love of my life. Without her my life would always have meant nothing; now I will always look back and think I had at least one good thing in my life.
