Can you be a true artist and not love social justice?
No, it’s impossible.
For at the bottom of your soul, in the very echo of every hearts cry is a passion for others, for life, for equality and for justice.
Success is the enemy of artistry when it raises the artist above the people; when it separates the artist from the ordinary man, who spends his life fighting for his little piece of land.
Perhaps this is why many artists produce their greatest work when they are unknown and unsuccessful?
Self indulgence is a wicked foe, and our “celebrity culture” is a carnivorous beast that attempts to devour the dignity and the humanity of every soul that it touches.
Remember in everything that you do, that good fruit can only produced when you sink into the realization that your life is not meant to be about you.
