"My advice to young people is don’t take any advice. Don’t listen to anyone. Fuck the system, fuck the rules, make it up as you go along — don’t copy what anyone else does, follow your heart, follow your dreams, and eventually you will wake up and you’ll look back at your work and you’ll realize that what you did was honest to yourself."
— Jefferson Hack
"Dreams flooded over me; I lay weary and hopeless in my bed."
— Franz Kafka, from The Blue Octavo Notebooks (1917-1919)
