Dave Sim quote:

“The dogs howl but the caravan rolls on. WHATEVER is going on in the general economy and/or the comic-book economy, the BEST thing you can do is to continue to work hard and move forward. The WORST thing you can do is to flop down with the dogs and howl.” *

Dave Sim quote:

“Self-publishing for a living is somewhere on a sliding scale between extremely unlikely and totally impossible” *

Here’s another Dave Sim quote that should be a Mantra:

Erik Larsen quotes:

Eminem lyrics:

“Cause I’m moving on, don’t worry about me
cause I’m gon be just fine without you, you’ll see.
There aint no-one on this Earth right now I’d much rather be
cause God-dammit I’m glad that I’m me.

I said if you could be where I’m at (bye bye)
you’d wanna be you too.
If you felt the way I feel
I bet you’d be in as good a mood as I am
but you don’t ’cause you just feel like you.”

Hugh Macleod quote:

“Was it worth the cost? Not really. It never is. Van Gough once told his brother, ‘No painting ever sells for as much as it cost the artist to make it.’ I’ve yet to meet in the flesh any artist who could prove him wrong.” *

Mark Millar quote:

“It can be soul-destroying writing stuff and not getting paid. That’s how I started. But necessity is a great thing. It forces you to be commercial. I think there’s a kind of literary Darwinism in evidence in all forms of media; it’s very much a case of the survival of the fittest. I hear people complaining about the system, but you have to totally embrace the system if you’re going to survive as a creative person; you have to love the idea of what you’re doing. If you stop loving it for a minute, it’s over.” *

This mantra goes well with this one and this one.

Mark Twain quote:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” *
