Ars Longa, Vita Brevis

Art is long, life is short.

One of my greatest fears is leaving this world without ever adding to it something meaningful that changes people’s lives for the better.

Everything has already been done before.

There are no more original ideas. There’s a pretty good chance that anything you try to create has already been done before. We live in an age of ingenuity: People create art and art changes lives. This is the way it should be. But for many people that chance will never manifest.

Ars Longa, Vita Brevis

Which means: “Art is long, Life is short.”
