Who'd a thunk it???? Harvard business school quotes applicable to the process of creation, artistic pursuit and the challenges of the artworld (or lack thereof in a post/mid GFC climate).

"There is no sense in being pessimistic...It wouldn't work anyway!" (I love that quote)

"In times of change, learners shall inherit the rewards, while the learned find themselves equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists."

"Remember that change is mandatory....progress is optional!"

"The art of progress is to preserve order amid change and to preserve change amid order."

"When trouble comes, don't be frightened by the negatives. Look for the positives and dig them out. They are so valuable it doesn't matter if you have to handle tons of dirt" (re diamond mining in South Africa).

"The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more." (Amen to that....we could even afford our art materials! and eat.)
