But if you’re gonna dine with them cannibals
Sooner or later, darling, you’re gonna get eaten . . .” ~ Nick Cave (source)
Not sure how this fits but … I think it has to do with how you associate with others. If you want to do art; hang with artists. If you want to write; hang with writers. If you want to be a winner; hang with winners. That must be it!
All great achievements require time.” ~ Maya Angelou (source)
Creating art is much like mining for gold… It is problem-solving at its best but you have to do the research, do the exploration, locate where you think the precious metal can be found, and then get to work either by panning, sifting, or digging. The work is hard but the reward is bountiful.
