Hiya! You're probably here because I've reviewed your fic or added it to my favourites - Thank you for publishing such great work for free, that's amazing! I'm more of a painter than a writer myself, you can check some of my work out on instagram (same name) if you'd like.
I mostly don't know anything, but it seems like these people do, so I'll copy and paste a few of their interesting words there. Not to describe me, but to maybe share what I like and find interesting or helpful.
"They say it started with a big bang
“Remember Kids - mental illness and heavy metal poisoning are not actually substitutes for Talent and Hard Work! Get therapy and don’t drink your paint water!”
"Lack of originality everywhere, all over the world, from time immemorial, has always been considered the foremost quality and the recommendation of the active, efficient and practical man"
"On a scale from one to zero, are you happy? [...]
"In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing."
"It's not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewere, would much rather you weren't doing."
"Being productive is learning to deal with the monkey in your head"
"You don't like yourself. But you do admire yourself. It's all you've got, so you cling to it. You're so afraid if you change, you'll lose what makes you special.
“There is nothing more to be said or to be done tonight, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather and the still more miserable ways of our fellowmen.”
“Laugh whenever you can. Keeps you from killing yourself when things are bad. That and vodka.”
"Dada doubts everything. Dada is an armadillo. Everything is Dada, too, Beware of Dada. Anti-dadaism is a disease: selfkleptomania, man's normal condition, is Dada. But the real dada's are against Dada."
"Writing sustains me, but wouldn’t it be better to say it sustains this kind of life? By which I don't mean my life is any better when I don’t write. On the contrary, it is far worse, wholly unbearable, and will have to end in insanity.
"You can't reason yourself back into cheerfulness any more than you can reason yourself into an extra six inches in height."
"Nothing happened to me, Officer Starling. I happened. You can't reduce me to a set of influences."
"So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
"The beauty of a Person is transient, nothing is more fleeting than a human life, but that does not apply to art. The joy of knowledge, in my opinion, is the most noble pleasure. Humans will soon soar through the air like birds. But I have to stop now, my soup is getting cold."
(okay you got me. I tried to be cool and aloof for once, and to keep my profile short, but obviously that didn't work. I started off with 10 quotes, and ended up with 17, but all of them are very important to me. If you like the quotes and want to talk about them, or the people that said them, please write me. I am super obsessed with all of them. Have a nice day.)
