  2. “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original.” Ken Robinson

  3. from Ignore Everybody, And 39 Other Keys to Creativity, Hugh MacLeod

    “Ignore everybody. The more original your idea is, the less good advice other people will be able to give you….You don’t know if your idea is any good the moment it’s created. Neither does anybody else. The most you can hope for is a strong gut feeling that it is….And asking close friends never works quite as well as you hope, either. It’s not that they deliberately want to be unhelpful. It’s just that they don’t know your world one millionth as well as you know your world, no matter how hard they try, no matter how hard you try to explain.”

  4. Graphic Design is like chasing turkeys.

  5. …usually for payment

  6. Why is it like chasing chickens? Sorry if this is obvious to native English speakers. Is it like a saying?
