Quote of the Day

I just wanted to save this. This was today's quote of the day:

"Few people can see genius in someone who has offended them. - Robertson Davies"

That is so true and typical of most people. Well, most people except me. I see genius in people who truly have it. Whether I like them or not. Like I said before (and everyone who has ever gotten to know me), I'm not like other people. I'm always honest, no matter what. But I see it all the time, people think just because someone doesn't like them, or says whatever is on their minds, that they are stupid or cannot do anything. I was glad to read this quote. I now know I am not the only person who has seen this as typical human behavior.

But then people judge others on what they like, and in such everyone has their own taste. Take for example, art. I think I do good sketches, a lot of people have told me I do great artwork. Not everyone though, because my style does not satisfy everyone. I learned that early on. Some people like my drawings while others don't. It's OK by me! I don't like Dali or Picasso's paintings. Doesn't mean my opinion is right or the only one there is. Well, you know what I mean. There are those though who base their opinions of my talent on their personal feelings about me. It's their business if they want to close their minds that way, but those people I tend to generally not listen to. They don't count. LOL! And yes, I can tell those people are basing their views on their personal feelings for me. It's not hard to see that when you've been at this as long as I have.

LOL! I remember when I was a little kid (about 5 or 6 years old) it used to make me feel sad when people said they didn't like my drawings. Now, I'm like "so what." I don't even flinch. I just chalk it up to that my style is just not their style. Anyone who bases their opinions of my work on how they feel about me personally are worthless anyway.
