The Artist

An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one. – Charles Horton Cooley

Just who are these critics who criticize art anyway? Pick up your paintbrush and give life to a blank canvas. Pick up your instrument and make music even if no one else is listening or if you are out of step with the others. Hold your pen and write the words that come straight from the heart. The only failed artist is the one that fears the slings and arrows of those who do not understand or do not want to and never takes a chance. Even the Dao has critics, but it goes on doing what it does. Everything is art.
