“Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use – do the work you want to see done.”
Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative

“If you ever find that you're the most talented person in the room, you need to find another room.”
Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative

“You are, in fact, a mashup of what you choose to let into your life.”
Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative

“Do you need an audience to create work, or does not having an audience liberate you and make you a truer artist?”
Dana Spiotta, Stone Arabia

“Don't be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.”
George Saunders, The Braindead Megaphone

“...but I could not sleep without proper covering and spent the rest of the night rewriting lost arguments from my past, altering history so that I emerged victorious.”
Patrick deWitt, The Sisters Brothers
