If I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution.
The things that made you weird as a kid, make you great today. But only if you put it in your work.
The revolution is me. Cause I understand the things that drive me as a human being drive other people as a human being. So, I have freed myself from making shit up.
The revolution isn't something you're going to join. The revolution isn't something you're waiting for an invitation for. The revolution is you.
To be a creative individual takes work, it takes an effort to maintain it. Because school teaches it out of you, because they want you to 'get in line'. To 'learn the rules', so we can get 'uniform students'. You know, As Bob Dylan says, '20 years of school and then they put you on the day shift.' You know - factory workers.
In the particular lies the universal.
The things that made you weird as a kid make you great today. But only if you put it in your work.
"You are not for everyone!"
What I believe is a revolution that you guys already have inside of you. The revolution is you. The revolution isn't something you're going to join. It isn't something you're waiting for an invitation for. The revolution is you.
You have to trust that what you have inside you – what you have to say – is of value and people want it. And we can't let our circumstances or other people take it away from us.
To be a creative individual takes work. It takes an effort to maintain it.
Put it in the work.
The more authentic, the more human, the more vulnerable and truthful and honest I can be here, the greater impact it's going to have on you guys.
Revolution doesn't exist. It's you. It's you and what you've got. It's you and your talents.
We don't do it for the reward. We don't do it to make people happy. We're not in the people pleasing business...We do it to make ourselves happy.
Having a revolution is sexy and attractive. And other people want to be involved in it.
The one things that makes us strong, the one thing that makes us unique, and we give up that power to somebody else.
I was called 'creative'. You know what that means? That means "We don't know what to do with him."
Here lies Thomas. He would've done great work, but his boss wouldn't let him.
It's a fucking revolution. It's going to be hard. It's going to involve sacrifice.
