ORIGINAL POST BY: Joseph Patrick Moore
Years ago I scribbled several quotes that really effected my outlook on music, creativity and life. Recently, I found this paper of quotes in a shoebox of memories. While I do not know the author, I thought it was worth blogging/posting and sharing this:
"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful - yourself."- author unknown
