Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Congratulate yourselves if you have done something strange and extravagant and broken the monotony of a decorous age.
Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.
George Bernard Shaw:
What is life, but a series of inspired follies?.
William S. Burroughs:
Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact.
