Desire

 

If anyone can be what they want to be - can anyone be a great artist?

Yes.

Great artists are born, not made.

This is also true.

The gift is the desire.

Many say, at one point or another, that they want to be the great artist.

But then times get tough, money gets tight, a different kind of opportunity arises, and so they start thinking about that.

They go that way.

The artist who is truly great, is the one who never wavers.

It's something of a suicidal course.

There simply is no option.

There is nothing else to think about.

Art - or nothing.

Your vision, your inspiration — or nothing.

If it takes you to the street - then that is what you do.

Everything is like that.

You are, what is most important to you.
