This week’s prompt is: Overcoming Ourselves
“It’s not all bad. Heightened self-consciousness, apartness, an inability to join in, physical shame and self-loathing—they are not all bad. Those devils have been my angels. Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me.”
– Stephen Fry, Moab Is My Washpot
“The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.”
– Robert Hughes, Modernism’s Patriarch (Time Magazine, June 10, 1996)
