“ I don’t think there’s any artist of any value who doesn’t doubt what they’re doing.”
I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?” If the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I have to change something. Remembering I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything, all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death.

“ A clear horizon: when all negative emotions are removed you can look forward, the road is clear ahead and now you’re going to create something. I think that’s as happy as I would ever want to be.”
“ Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
