There are some people who are socially dysfunctional, but very creative. We get rid of them. Alright? If we don’t have a healthy group, then it isn’t going to work. There’s this illusion that there’s this person who’s creative and who’s got all this stuff… Well, the fact is, there are literally thousands of ideas involved in putting something together, and the notion of ideas as this singular thing is a fundamental flaw. There are so many ideas that what you need is that group behaving creatively. The person who’s got the vision I think is unique — there are very few people who’ve got that vision to put it together — but they’re actually drawing the best out of people. If they can’t draw the best out of people then they will fail.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

The little boy went first day of school
He got some crayons and started to draw
He put colors all over the paper
For colors was what he saw
And the teacher said.. What you doin’ young man
I’m paintin’ flowers he said
She said… It’s not the time for art young man
And anyway flowers are green and red
There’s a time for everything young man
And a way it should be done
You’ve got to show concern for everyone else
For you’re not the only one

We each have our own path to tread. That seems such a simple and obvious thought, but in the world of relationships where so many people subliminate their own true feelings and desires in consideration of others, we take far too many steps off that true path. In the end, though, if we are to truly be happy, we must follow our hearts and find our way alone, leaving that consideration behind.
