I had to become a person again among all the other people pretending to be people.From Catch Me When I Fall by Nicci French (via hush-syrup)
Your sadness is immaterial. You did
not come into the world to be happy.
When things get tough, this is what you should do: Make good art. I’m serious. Husband runs off with a politician — make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by a mutated boa constrictor — make good art. IRS on your trail — make good art. Cat exploded — make good art. Someone on the Internet thinks what you’re doing is stupid or evil or it’s all been done before — make good art. Probably things will work out somehow, eventually time will take the sting away, and that doesn’t even matter. Do what only you can do best: Make good art. Make it on the bad days, make it on the good days, too.Neil Gaiman from Brain Picking article
