  •  if it is not worth doing for love... (3+ / 0-)

    ...it is not worth doing.

    Newsflash:

    People who invent things or do interesting things, like, say, "build a better mousetrap", do it for the thrill and love and sheer engagement of doing it. They do it because it is their "thing" to do.  This energy is the source, this is what creativity is all about.

    Getting a bunch of money for it is rather incidental to the process, not the driver of the process.

    If one doesn't get this, one doesn't actually get the nature of creativity.

    don't always believe what you think...

      •  this phrase is 43 years old (0+ / 0-)

        in my consciousness.  One of many aphorisms from that era that has real sticking power.  It's not like nobody saw all this shit coming a long time ago.

        If it's not worth doing for love, it's not worth doing.
