It’s horrible when your heart is somewhere your body is not.
Do not mock a pain that you haven’t endured.

You can’t control whether or not you have talent. You can’t control whether or not your work will be recognized or valued. But what you can control is how much work you put your art—both in terms of creating it and in terms of getting it out there—and that is where I try to focus my energy.
