“Make some sacrifice for your art and you will be repaid but ask of art to sacrifice herself for you and a bitter disappointment may come to you.”- Oscar Wilde
Whatever you may do, do it for love, and passion’s sake. Look deeply at your intentions, love without ownership, do without expecting reciprocations, and befriend without conditions. Let go of the quid pro quo. The gift is giving. Flood the alleyways of exchange and compensation with a sense of compassion and forgiveness. We have the power to create a paradise.
“The best work in literature is always done by those who do not depend on it for their daily bread.”- Oscar Wilde
