"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to." — Jim Jarmusch Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for. If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for a reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
