Richard Branson quote:

“You should never go into an industry just with the purpose of making money.  One has to passionately believe it is possible to change the industry, to turn it on its head, to make sure that it will never be the same again.” *

John Romita Jr quote:

“I’m a fan of several different artists.  Leinil Yu and David Finch and Bryan Hitch. Those three guys I get their books and I keep them near by my desk and I look at what they do.  They’re a breath of fresh air in the industry.  I still keep Jim Lee’s work and both of the Kubert brothers work around.  Now what I mean by ‘keep around’ is … there are moments when I wake up on a monday morning and I’m not in the greatest working mode, and that’s true of anybody.  So what I do is I pick through and look through some of the other guy’s work and see how much ambition they put in theirs.  AND THEN (and you’re going to think I’m out of my fricken mind) I go to message boards and have people send me links to all of my critics (not all, but the people who hate my stuff) and I read the poison that is e-mailed to the message board and it inspires me.  So between the young studs that are really really good and the banannas that hate my guts online, it gets me in the mood to work.  And if THAT doesn’t work, I open up my mortgage payment bills everymonth, and that REALLY inspires me.” *


Mark Millar quote:

“Johnny’s got the best work ethic that I’ve ever seen in my life – even outside of comics. I’ve never seen anyone who works as hard as Johnny. He gets up at like 5 am, and does an hour in the gym, and just starts drawing. He’s like a comics drawing machine – he can turn a full issue around in a week, and it’s better than anyone else. Rumor has that he did one issue of Spider-Man in four days one time. There’s no one like him – he’s Marvel’s greatest asset.” *

Tony Robbins quote:

“Almost all of us fall far short of what we are really capable of if we just adopted more faith, because we have some fear.  Because we don’t realize what we are really capable of. I think part of life’s balance is; in order to know how far you can go, you’ve got to go too far.” *

Reminiscent of MANTRA 6.
