"You’re valid. Step up. Bring what you’ve got. Don’t you dare hold back. Not cringing back, not with arrogant pride, with sane humility bring your stuff. Other people need it."
“If we are ever going to create anything beautiful, lasting, and worthwhile, it’s going to come from who we are when we are stripped of all our striving.”
"When we make, we invoke the abundance of God's world into the reality of scarcity all about us."
"Let's start seeing creativity as an investment rather than a cost."
“The bigger the change we hope for, the longer we must be willing to invest, work for, and wait for it.”
"Your habits in the short term impact your calling in the long term."
“You have a masterpiece inside you, too, you know. One unlike any that has ever been created, or ever will be. And remember: If you go to your grave without painting your masterpiece, it will not get painted. No one else can paint it. Only you.”
