Quote Quorner

More quotes from Steven Pressfield's The War of Art:

"Our job in this life time is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it..."

This one has a bit of fatalism and Zen to it, but I like it.  I agree with the concept of not wanting, wanting, wanting, but being.

"The Mother of All Fears...[is] Fear That We Will Succeed..."

"The playwright Agathon tells us, 'This alone is denied to God:/the power to undo the past."

"There's no mystery to turning pro.  It's a decision brought about by an act of will.  We make up our mind to view ourselves as pros and we do it.  Simple as that."

More on pros next time.
