— Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray)
I've lived wildly and I work manically - so I hope the above isn't as true as it sounds.
I came across this quote in Dave Eggers "Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" today and I just put the book down after I read it. Most of the artists I admire (mostly filmmakers and writers, but some painters), are perfectly boring in their personal lives, but highly efficient and they make wonderful and interesting art. I'm neither efficient, boring, nor, in my opinion, have I produced much art that I'm REALLY proud of. I've got stories for days though, let me tell you.
