“I am always doing things I can’t do–that’s how I get to do them.” Pablo Picasso
Here is another of my Picasso favorites:
“My mother said to me, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general; if you become a monk, you’ll end up as the pope.’ Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.” Pablo PicassoBoth quotes share a common thread. Picasso was pushing past what others “expected” of him. Picasso was true to himself, versus the many voices that no doubt clouded his world.
