“Being an artist doesn’t mean that you’re a good artist. That was the bargain I first made with myself: I’d say, ‘I’m an artist, but I’m not really very good’.”

“All lies and jests, still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.”

“I don’t consider myself to be a major talent, so the only solace I can take is to hope I’m growing.”

“You want to be a writer, don’t know how or when? Find a quiet place, use a humble pen.”

“My life so common it disappears and sometimes even music cannot substitute for tears.”

– Paul Simon  (1941- )
