Art is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force.
There lies its immense value. For what it seeks is to disturb monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine.
Some succeed because they are destined to, but most succeed because they are determined to.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.
