  7. To create one's world in any of the arts takes courage.
  8. Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time. -Georgia O'Keeffe.
  9. Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest.
  10. Someone else's vision will never be as good as your own vision of your self. Live and die with it 'cause in the end it's all you have. Lose it and you lose yourself and everything else. I should have listened to myself.
