An exceptionally inspiring book by Rick Rubin. Here are some quotes I’ve found particularly inspiring.

Look for what you notice
but no one else sees.

The real work of the artist
is a way of being in the world.

Create an environment
where you’re free to express
what you’re afraid to express.

Do what you can
with what you have.
Nothing more is needed.

The best work
is the work you are excited about.

However you frame yourself as an artist,
the frame is too small.
