Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage. Just, literally, 20 seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.
We Bought a Zoo, 2011.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Si no eres un desposeído, ¿para qué hacer arte? Si no te sientes rechazado y todo eso, es probable que te sientas un poco más satisfecho y no tengas esta necesidad de salvar tu vida haciendo algo.
Mike Mills. Beautiful Losers, 2008.

When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me flying around in invisible pieces. When I look too hard, it goes away. And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I’m a little piece in a big, big universe. And that makes things right.
Beasts of the Southern Wild, 2012.
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 thing to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic.
Your job is to collect good ideas. The more good ideas you collect, the more you can choose from to be influenced by.
Austin Kleon. Steal like an artist.2
