Ideas are born; they have their infancy, their youth - their time of stress and struggle - they succeed, they grown senile, they nod, they sleep, they die; they are buried and remain in their graves for ages. And then they come again in the garb of youth, to slaughter and slay - and inspire and liberate. And this death and resurrection goes on forever. In Time, there is nothing either new or old: there is only the rising and the falling of the Infinite TideElbert Hubbard
If God gives you the voltage to shine and you waste it that’s the curse.2Pac
Art is a project; it is not a place. You will build your dream house and it will burn down. You will start your business and it will succeed, until it doesn’t, and then you will move on. You will stand on-stage and speak from the heart, and some people in the audience (perhaps just one person in the audience) won’t get you, won’t accept you, won’t embrace you.
That’s what art is.
Art is a leap into the void, a chance to give birth to your genius and to make magic where there was no magic before.
You are capable of this. You’ve done it before and you’re going to do it again. The very fact that it might not work is precisely why you should and must do this. What a gift that there isn’t a sure thing, a guarantee, and a net.
It’s entirely possible that there won’t be a standing ovation at the end of your journey.
At least you lived.
Impress yourself. Too often we worry about pleasing everyone else and wonder why we aren’t satisfied. Do things, so that years down the road, you are proud of you.
The beauty we wish to find in the world is right here, right now. It always has been and always will be.
Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art.Andy Warhol
