“We can all take pictures but not everyone can capture the beauty that's usually hidden in plain view...

We can all open our mouth to sing but not everyone can melodically touch your soul...

We can all pick up a pen to write but not everyone can write words in such a way that they leap off of the page for you...

We can all part our lips to speak but not everyone can speak life into you...

We can all move our bodies to a beat but not everyone can become one with music, stir emotions and shift energy with dance...

Point is: WE CAN all do something but Know your gifts, cultivate them and ALWAYS, ALWAYS BE YOURSELF! Then working together becomes effortless. Copies aren't accepted everywhere...ORIGINALS are eventually required!”

“STAY AN ORIGINAL WORK OF ART

In this short lifetime,
Why not be --
True to your own voice,
Your own story,
Your own truths,
Your own style,
Beat and drum --
Instead of reflect the words,
Songs and march of another?
Why not use your soul's own
Unique language,
Instead of constantly try to toot something
Not true, suitable or intended
For your own instrument,
Painting,
Song,
Or story?

Why create an image you cannot produce?
And if you can create a brilliant mask,
How long will you really be able to hide your true soul
Behind it
Until its colors and plastic
Begin to fade and melt with
Time?

Do not speak about truth when there is no truth in you.
Do not speak about being yourself when you are trying hard to be someone else.
Do not keep crying about your pain when you you have no shame creating pain in others.
Do not step on truth, or someone else's truth, or someone who fights for truth --
And think there will be no repercussions;
For there is more danger in silence,
And for every action there will always be a reaction
Of opposite or equal measure.

Treasure integrity,
Treasure your own story and truths.
How will people remember you when you want to be an imitation?
How will people remember your voice when you want to sound like another?
Be so different that everybody will remember you.
Be yourself because an original is worth more than a copy.
Be true to yourself or your heart will never forgive you;
For once you silence the music from your own instrument,
Your true purpose and intended path will begin to fade.
There is no greater crime
Than ignoring your conscience
And the truths intended
For you to live, learn,
And share.
So
Stay
TRUE
to YOU
In everything
You do.
That itself is the purest
And truest
Art.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The way a crane creates, then erases itself, from the skyline." He'd been referring to how I, as a copywriter, created R.H. Macy's, but the same metaphor might easily have been applied to how I, as a mother, was creating my son.”
