Frankenstein's Saturday Post # 13

Frankie's back!

Here's a great quote that Frankenstein found handwritten in an old sketchbook from earlier days that can only inspire and get you off your butt and do something amazing!

Don't count on fame - that's not the point. It's not important. The celebrity and the glamour come naturally. The really important bit is the commitment to life, the commitment to people. And to the work involved. Trust on a very deep level that everything will be O.K.  And don't despair. The great tragedies, the big self-destructive tragedies, happen in a split second, when the human being gives up and thinks, I can't do it. It's too much for me, I'm gonna cop out, I'm gonna check out. That is an illusion. It's actually a hallucination. It's not true; it's gonna be O.K. Just hang on.
