Quote of the Day For the Talented Who Never Gain Fame or Fortune

“I figured out pretty quickly that attention to an artist, a song, a politician, or a religious leader has nothing to do with it being ‘deserved,’ as there are a lot of really great, talented people who never gain fame or fortune … and plenty who do that don’t deserve it. Same goes for songs or works of art. If you’re looking for a world where everyone deserved to be who they are, you’ve probably come to the wrong place. Knowing this, it’s easier to just be yourself and not take it too seriously. I perform what I enjoy doing, and occasionally learn to enjoy what others have favorably judged.”- Arlo Guthrie, interview with The Bluegrass Situation
