Because You Have To

If yesterday’s post, How Much Does a City Impact Your Success?, didn’t have enough Patti Smith in it for you, here is a video of her giving advice to the young at the Louisiana Literature festival on August 24, 2012 at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Her words are simple, yet insightful and said from a place of real experience. Some small nuggets of wisdom to think about as you prepare for your weekend! 

“To be an artist — actually, to be a human being in these times — it’s all difficult…What matters is to know what you want and pursue it.”
