“I think there’s an artist hidden at the bottom of every single one of us.”
He’s right, you know. Even if you don’t consider yourself an artist… even if you never draw or paint or sculpt… even if you don’t know Monet from Manet… You create art and you are art. When you enjoy doing something, that is a piece of artwork in this big thing we call Existence. The people around you wouldn’t be the same if it weren’t for you. Even if it’s just sitting down, reading the paper, and listening to your Pandora or Spotify playlist, that moment is yours. While you may be a human like every person you know, you’re still unique. No one is just like you, even if you have an identical twin.
“We don’t make mistakes. We just have happy accidents.”
This is among his top 3 most famous quotes. While we can’t always agree with this (for instance, if you drop a plate and it shatters), in life even screwing something up can lead to good things. Alexander Fleming forgot to put a petri dish in the incubator, leading him to discover the antibiotic ability of penicillium mold. In painting, if you mix paint with titanium white it looks different when mixed with zinc white. Yes, it was a mistake, but now you can use that newfound skill later.
