Patti Smith Crawling on Stage

“For everything bad, there’s a million really exciting things, whether it’s someone puts out a really great book, there’s a new movie, there’s a new detective, the sky is unbelievably golden, or you have the best cup of coffee you ever had in your life.”

“If I’ve learned one thing in life, it’s not to be so judgmental of other people.”

“An artist may have burdens the ordinary citizen doesn’t know, but the ordinary citizen has burdens that many artists never even touch.”

“Nothing is a hobby – each discipline is its own world with its own high standards. Of course, every artist has ‘minor works’ that they do, but I don’t think I have any ‘minor disciplines.'”

“I think we have a creative impulse where suffering can magnify our work, but so can joy. You can be in love and write the greatest love song ever. Sometimes I think too much suffering makes it difficult to do one’s work.”

“I never felt oppressed because of my gender. When I’m writing a poem or drawing, I’m not a female; I’m an artist.”

Pushing The Edge

Alex Honnold Free Solo

Alex Honnold is amazing. Whenever I find a recent interview, I’m always excited to hear what he is up to and how his life has progressed. This week he has a new interview with Joe Rogan. If you aren’t familiar with Honnold’s work and life path, I’ll include a few short videos for you. He’s a rare being.

You Control the Chapters

Kevin Hart Photo Illustration

“You’re basically telling your story. We’re all writing a book, whether you realize it or not. And the beautiful thing about the book that you write, is that you control the chapters. Whether one chapter ends bad or not, there is another chapter that starts after that. And it keeps on going, and your job is to make sure that your book ends well. And when that book ends well, you’re going to look back at your story and you’re gonna say, “I wouldn’t have had it any other way, because I did it the right way. I worked, and I got what the fuck I worked for at the end, like I was suppose to.” No matter what, it will pay off. For some it takes more time than others, for some it’s faster. One man or woman’s journey has nothing to do with the next. Focus on yours and yours only. You’re competing with yourself. That’s who you’re competing with — yourself! Nobody else. There is nobody else holding you back but you. That’s it. In any craft, whether you choose comedy, acting, the business world — whatever it is, it’s you against you. You can’t become the best version of you until you realize your self worth.”
