Thought of The Day Jan 20, 2009

Motivation works in mysterious ways. Mr. Tandazo, my life drawing teacher, whom I adored, back in the 10th grade told me: "You're all over the place, you lack discipline, you'll never become a successful artist" He was right, of course, but I hated him for saying it and vowed to one day prove him wrong.

I was so hurt that it never dawn on me (until fairly recently, anyway) that this was precisely what he wanted me to do.
