„Follow your heart, follow your dreams. If writing is your passion, put everything you have into it.“
— J.M. DeMatteis comics illustrator 1953
Context: Follow your heart, follow your dreams. If writing is your passion, put everything you have into it. Let that passion, that joy, lead you.

And don’t let the Nay-Sayers, the Practical People, stop you or wear you down. Follow your dreams... and you can’t go wrong.
— Nikos Kazantzakis Greek writer 1883 - 1957
Context: You are not a miserable and momentary body; behind your fleeting mask of clay, a thousand-year-old face lies in ambush. Your passions and your thoughts are older than your heart or brain.
