“The idea of suffering is universal and it’s something that applies to everyone in varying degrees. It’s something that ties us all together… there’s no rule; everybody comes to something. Everybody has their own personal demons and their struggles and something that makes them question their own purpose and something that makes them question their ability to cope. Dwelling on it, the self-loathing is pointless, but it’s also not wrong for him to have a hard time coming to terms with his own personal struggle. Just because your ‘thing’ doesn't seem as significant as someone else’s doesn't mean it’s insignificant.” -Jordan Dreyer "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." -Nietzsche "What is a poet? An unhappy man who hides deep anguish in his heart, but whose lips are so formed that when the sigh and cry pass through them, it sounds like lovely music.... And people flock around the poet and say: 'Sing again soon' - that is, 'May new sufferings torment your soul but your lips be fashioned as before, for the cry would only frighten us, but the music, that is blissful." -Søren Kierkegaard “Art is not a mirror held up to reality but a hammer with which to shape it.” -Bertolt Brecht These are just the incoherent thoughts of an artistic nobody.
