dare to fail

“Most people don’t know what they want or feel. And for everyone, myself included, its very difficult to say what you mean when what you mean is painful. The most difficult thing in the world is to reveal yourself, to express what you have to. . . As an artist, I feel that we must try many things – but above all, we must dare to fail. You must have the courage to be bad – to be willing to risk everything to really express it all.”
John Cassavetes

  • Thanks for that one, Jef. Read it after another week of failing with cyanotypes – aGAIN!

    They’re crap. They’re all, really, really crap….but, hell, the ones next week can’t be any worse.

  • Desiree

    Amen to that!
