Because when one can control things, one is limited to one's own vision." - Kiki Smith

“The other peoples of the world are not failed attempts at being you.” - Wade Davis ❤️
"We created a culture of ‘pleasing’ that is now hijacking us. We want to please everybody: the audiences, the subscribers, the sponsors, the press, the colleagues… a big mistake!

"It’s not to anybody’s best interest to think about how they will be perceived tomorrow. It hurts you in the long run.” - Bob Dylan
