In the end, it’s not a question of what kind of person flies and what kind of person fades. We all do both. Perhaps that’s why, when I put the choice to myself, I’m hopelessly, completely stuck. At the heart of this decision, the question I really don’t want to face is this. Who do you want to be? The person you hope to be, or the person you fear you actually are?John Hodgman, This American Life #508

Stephen King has said something to the effect of, if you forget an idea you had, then it can’t have been good enough to remember. This only works if you’re Stephen King. If you are not Stephen King, don’t try it. Write that shit down and file it.Warren Ellis

Английский кинопереводчики любят, русский — тоже любят, но по-другому. Это как с любовницей и женой. Жена от тебя постоянно что-то хочет, то удлини, то укороти, то найди аналог, то купи хлеба.Наталья Крайнер
That’s the trick of nostalgia, and why yoking it is such a dangerous business. It’s never “as good,” because it can’t be. “As good” wouldn’t satisfy you, now, because you aren’t the person who was satisfied by it anymore, partly because of the satisfaction you felt earlier, but also because of every other force and beam and ray which is always operating on your aggregated being.Jerry Holkins
I’ve spent my entire career obsessively trying to “learn how to draw” when I should’ve just been drawing. Always thinking “I just need to get a little better… and then I’ll start working on (insert any of a hundred personal projects)”
The fact is that i’ve been good enough since my teens- and would’ve improved so much more rapidly had my study been in the service of any of those projects- and not in the dozens of sketchbooks pilled in my closet.
Lesson: Don’t use “learning” as an excuse to avoid “doing”.
