"Try to be great. Try to give extra. Try to be bold, try to invent your own reality, try to do what’s not been done before. Don’t even get started if you’re going to do some mediocre shit cause there’s so much of that. Don’t do it just to make noise, there’s too much noise. Give me something amazing, give me something new. Give me something I haven’t seen before in a way I haven’t seen it. Let me feel something, find some kind of magic. Go towards something that’s inexplicable. Give it to me, give me something that’s aggressive and gnarly. Chew up the world, come at it from some other place, but just don’t give me the same shit over and over again because I don’t want it."
"It is not childish to live with uncertainty, to devote oneself to a craft rather than a career, to an idea rather than an institution. It’s courageous and requires courage of the order that the institutionally co-opted are ill equipped to perceive."
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."
