I mostly don't know anything, but it seems like these people do, so I'll copy and paste a few of their interesting words there. Not to describe me, but to maybe share what I like and find interesting or helpful.
"They say it started with a big bang
But they say it came out of a small thing
Lately I’m feeling like a big bang
‘Cause I’ve been making something out of nothing"
― "Infinitesimal" by Mother Mother
“Remember Kids - mental illness and heavy metal poisoning are not actually substitutes for Talent and Hard Work! Get therapy and don’t drink your paint water!”
― Anonymous Art History Teacher
"Lack of originality everywhere, all over the world, from time immemorial, has always been considered the foremost quality and the recommendation of the active, efficient and practical man"
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
"On a scale from one to zero, are you happy? [...]
But what the f*ck kind of question is "Am I happy"?
I really wanna try to get happy
And I think that I could get it if I didn’t always panic every time I’m unhappy like
I’m owed some life where I’m always, like, happy
Which is stupid ‘cause I wouldn’t even want it if I got it"
― "Are You Happy?" by Bo Burnham
"In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing."
― Vincent Van Gogh
"It's not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewere, would much rather you weren't doing."
― Sir Terry Pratchett
"Being productive is learning to deal with the monkey in your head"
― C.G.P Grey.
"You don't like yourself. But you do admire yourself. It's all you've got, so you cling to it. You're so afraid if you change, you'll lose what makes you special.
Being miserable doesn't make you better than anybody else, House. It just makes you miserable."
― Dr. James Wilson (S2 EP11, House MD)
“There is nothing more to be said or to be done tonight, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather and the still more miserable ways of our fellowmen.”
― Sherlock Holmes in "The Five Orange Pips" (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)
“Laugh whenever you can. Keeps you from killing yourself when things are bad. That and vodka.”
― Harry Dresden in "Changes" (Jim Butcher)
"Dada doubts everything. Dada is an armadillo. Everything is Dada, too, Beware of Dada. Anti-dadaism is a disease: selfkleptomania, man's normal condition, is Dada. But the real dada's are against Dada."
― Tristan Tzara
"Writing sustains me, but wouldn’t it be better to say it sustains this kind of life? By which I don't mean my life is any better when I don’t write. On the contrary, it is far worse, wholly unbearable, and will have to end in insanity.
This is, of course, only on the assumption that I am a writer even when I don’t write, and such is the case - though a non-writing writer is an insanely absurd thing."
― Franz Kafka
"You can't reason yourself back into cheerfulness any more than you can reason yourself into an extra six inches in height."
― Stephen Fry
"Nothing happened to me, Officer Starling. I happened. You can't reduce me to a set of influences."
― Hannibal Lector in "The Silence of the Lambs" (Thomas Harris)
"So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby!
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here!
Nothing really matters, anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me
Any way the wind blows"
― "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen
"The beauty of a Person is transient, nothing is more fleeting than a human life, but that does not apply to art. The joy of knowledge, in my opinion, is the most noble pleasure. Humans will soon soar through the air like birds. But I have to stop now, my soup is getting cold."
― Leonardo da Vinci
(okay you got me. I tried to be cool and aloof for once, and to keep my profile short, but obviously that didn't work. I started off with 10 quotes, and ended up with 17, but all of them are very important to me. Just wanted to tell y'all thanks for looking at my pretentious profile and liking my art. Also, if you like the quotes and want to talk about them, or the people that said them, please write me. I am super obsessed with all of them. That's all, folks. Have a nice day.)
