Inspiration for days….

I am a huge fanatic of interviews. I tend to read all kinds of interviews from Skateboarders to Business people and everything in between. Recently I have been enjoying writer interviews via the great site The Paris Review.

“All of us failed to match our dream of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible.”

The quote above is from an interview done to William Faulkner in 1956 and it resonated so much on how I feel most of the time. There are some more great quotable statements like this one:

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. An artist is a creature driven by demons. He don’t know why they choose him and he’s usually too busy to wonder why.”
