"Criticize by creating." - Nikolai Gogol

One of my favorite tracks from my favorite childhood LP, Funky Favorites

 

There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion […] The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson
