Every Child is an Artist. The Problem is how to Remain an Artist once we grow up

 

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso

I don't know about you, but throughout my school-time it seemed that what most teachers wanted to achieve was to make me (and everyone else) anything but an artist, a writer, or a creative person. Even though Picasso died in 1973 and probably came up with this quote quite a while before that, it is more relevant than ever. Most people are driven towards a 'safe' future by getting a 'safe' office-job and basically push papers all day long, and maybe do some art (or something creative) as a hobby. However, since the arrival of crowd-funding sites such as patreon.com, it is easier than ever to built a fan base and make a living being an artist, musician, blogger, or any other type of creator. 

Pablo Picassos work might not be appreciated by everyone, but this quote couldn't be more true. If you like this quote, feel free to share it with and discuss it with your friends on your favourite social network.

Sometimes people take the great things you are doing as a personal attack on their own life. Do not let their insecurities dishearten you

 
Sometimes people take the great things you are doing as a personal attack on their own life

"Sometimes people take the great things you are doing as a personal attack on their own life. Do not let their insecurities dishearten you" - Daniel Chidiac

According to motivational speaker Brian Tracy, the average number of people who set themselves a goal and then even begin to work on that goal is actually less than one. In other words, only very few people even start to work on their goals in life. The vast majority stops before they even begin to do anything. I believe the main reason for that is fear, and this quote supports that. There will always be people who will disagree with what you are doing, and that's ok because if you try to please everyone you will not get very far in life. The same goes for travelling the world; some people will love you for it, others might not. This doesn't mean you should stop doing it though. If you are interested in building a life you don't need a vacation from, read how to live rent free and travel the world.

Life is a Tragedy when seen in Close-up, but a Comedy in long-shot

 

"Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot." - Charlie Chaplin

I don't think Charlie Chaplin needs any introduction, if you for some reason don't know about him, just check out his Wikipedia page or this documentary. This quote is very true, because far too many people judge life by events that happened to them recently and miss the bigger picture. Nobody really knows the meaning of life, but according to Alan Watts the point of life is simply to live.

The Trick in Life isn't getting what you want, my dear, it's wanting it after you get it

 
The trick in Life isn't getting what you want, my dear, it's wanting it after you get it

"The trick in life isn't getting what you want, my dear, it's wanting it after you get it." - Katharine Hepburn

Katharine Hepburn was a major American actress, yet there was a time when she was actually labelled "box office poison". But as the above quote points out, you have to want the things you get given after you get them, and not simply give up on them. This goes for pretty much anything in life, but I think this is especially true for travel. If you are going to a new country there is no way of knowing whether you will like that particular country or not. We mostly judge this by the experiences we make once we arrive and spend a small amount of time in that country, and just one negative experience can ruin the whole trip for some. The next time something negative happens to you on a trip, try and look at the bigger picture and not judge too quickly. There are always ways to turn a bad situation into a good one. Even Hepburn herself managed to pull herself back together after being labelled box office poison. If you want to know more about her, check out this documentary:

"I would rather die of passion than of boredom" - Vincent Van Gogh

 
I would rather die of passion than of boredom Vincent Van Gogh quotes
"I would rather die of passion than of boredom" - Vincent Van Gogh 

Vincent Van Gogh was not only a brilliant artist, he also travelled a fair bit during his lifetime. He certainly died of passion (officially it was a self inflicted gunshot wound, but no gun has ever actually been found), and this quote is very true. If you die for something, you might as well die for something you love. 

If you want to know more about Van Goghs life, check out this documentary with Benedict Cumberbatch actually playing Vincent Van Gogh here:

5 Wise Quotes from Rob Hill Sr. you need to see!

 
my goal is to build s life i dont need a vacation from


"My goal is to build a life I don't need a vacation from." - Rob Hill Sr.

The first thing that comes to mind when reading this quote is 'why isn't this everyone's goal in life!?' We live in a society that accepts wasting the best years of our life doing things we don't enjoy doing, just so we can buy things we don't need and pay bills for places we call home but hardly ever stay in because we are always at work or out elsewhere. This is perhaps one of the most important quotes that people can come across and word needs to be spread that a life that you don't want or need a vacation from is actually available to all of us. To learn more about Rob Hill Sr., read his best-selling book 'I Got You: Restoring Confidence in Love and Relationships', see Amazon links below (click the left link for amazon US and the right link for Amazon UK)

“Hope is beyond fear. Faith is beyond disappointment. Love is beyond pain. Persistence is beyond rejection. Dedication is beyond doubt.” - Rob Hill Sr., I GOT YOU: Restoring Confidence in Love and Relationships

“Am I lonely because no one cares, or am I lonely because I’m not strong enough to let anyone get close enough to care?” - Rob Hill Sr., I GOT YOU: Restoring Confidence in Love and Relationships

And at the end of the day, your Feet should be Dirty, your Hair Messy, and your Eyes Sparkling

 
and at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling


"And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling." - Shanti

The origin of this quote varies, but the core message behind it is very true. In my opinion, this quote can be interpreted as 'go and explore the world'. The things you discover in places you have never been before will make your eyes 'sparkle', and this is something that people should try at least once in their lifetime. It is easier to travel the world than many people think, and can be done for very little money. Read more about how to travel the world cheaply, but at the same time luxuriously here

The world is not in your books & maps. It's out there

 
the world is not in your books and maps. It's out there

"The world is not in your books & maps. It's out there." - Gandalf in 'The Hobbit'

This quote may be from a film, but it is so true and definitely applies to real life. Especially with everyone always being on their computers and smartphones, most people seem to forget that the real world is still out there and theirs to explore.
