Do something for do’s sake. Do it because the message resonates with everybody and you’re not trying to sell something—you’re just telling. Brands today, even though they say they’re socially aware, it all boils down to what can you sell. We’re all trying to sell and get clicks and likes. This is creative that’s really intelligent.” -Petur Workman



Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.” -Anne Lamott


I tend to be most interested in the kinds of people who do not sweeten or dilute themselves for the sake of people’s tastes. Who never soften the blow of who they are. Like my coffee, I prefer the people I connect with to be full-strength and searing hot. And able to rouse my weary, idle heart.” -Beau Taplin
