Motivation to fail


I, myself, have had many failures and I’ve learned that if you are not failing a lot, you are probably not being as creative as you could be – you aren’t stretching your imagination.

John Backus

What do you desire?


A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.

Ayn Rand

Pulling through

In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.

Give us what you’ve got

Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and  every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.

Stephen Pressfield
