Quotation Motivation: Be Not Afraid

I haven't posted in a while because I've been hustling. No, not street pharmacy or the kind that requires clear heels:) I've writing my own work and trying to get it out there. I've also been writing for a few web sites including my favorite, Madame Noire. Right now, I'm writing an article for Madame Noire about living life as a starving artist. I'll post a link to it when it's up on the site. Anyway, I was looking for some artsy quotes for the article and I found two really great ones from singer/songwriter Jason Mraz. I hope they inspire you as they did me.
"Another year is fast approaching. Go be that starving artist you’re afraid to be. Open up that journal and get poetic finally. Volunteer. Suck it up and travel. You were not born here to work and pay taxes. You were put here to be part of a vast organism to explore and create. Stop putting it off. The world has much more to offer than what’s on 15 televisions at TGI Fridays. Take pictures. Scare people. Shake up the scene. Be the change you want to see in the world." - Jason Mraz
"Frustration and Love can’t exist in the same place at the same time, so get real and start doing what you would rather be doing in life. Love your life. All of it. Even the heavy shit that happened to you when you were 8. All of it was and IS perfect." -Jason Mraz
