There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

—Paulo Coelho.

I think the only reason I’ve had the career life that I’ve had is that someone told me some secrets early on about living. You can do the very best you can when you’re very, very relaxed, no matter what it is or what your job is, the more relaxed you are the better you are. That’s sort of why I got into acting. I realized the more fun I had, the better I did it. And I thought, that’s a job I could be proud of. It’s changed my life learning that, and it’s made me better at what I do.

—Bill Murray’s personal philosophy

I am going to stop calling you a white man and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.

—Morgan Freeman

Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, ‘Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.’ So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look.

There’s an element to songwriting that I can’t explain, that comes from somewhere else. I can’t explain that dividing line between nothing and something that happens within a song, where you have absolutely nothing, and then suddenly you have something. It’s like the origin of the universe.

—Nick Cave

Guided By Voices - Hold on Hope (acoustic cover) by Buildings on Fire

Do the Collapse was the first record I ever bought by Guided By Voices. This was the first track that I really loved of theirs. I hope you enjoy it :)
