NVDT Random – Succinct

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”


This quote came to me via David Limrite’s weekly ‘Go get ’em, tiger’ email for graphic artists. I found it not only timely but very applicable. The post is here if you need some encouragement to shoot high and suck and not feel bad but learn from it. Been there so many times I became my own cheerleading section.

What I really want to know is how did Mike even see that stuff, much less nail it? And Beethoven. Get out. These people should be illegal.

  1. They would be illegal IF their work was known and appreciated for their philosophy rather than their “art and entertainment” value. If it can be managed so it doesn’t cause revolutions, bonus. If profit can be made from it, double bonus.

    1. Amen. Especially the dead people. Who gets the royalties for a Beethoven recording, or the sale of Pieta souvenirs? Sure as hell not Ludwig or Mikey.
