"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." – #PabloPicasso Let's be honest. Life is hard. Life is difficult and it is equally difficult to hold on to the wonder of childhood, when our eyes saw things in a more innocent and joyous way. When we didn't know as much as we do now, as adults. #msharris #writer #bookstagram #books #writersofinstagram #writersoftumblr #author #reading #artist #inspirationalquotes #quote #famousquotes
Life is hard. Life is difficult and as we grow up and we grow old, life likes to slap us and know us down, dedicated in teaching us important “lessons”.
Ever so slowly, we lose our fearlessness, our passion and our wonder. We no longer see the world as a child does, with pure joy at every little discovery, with the need to explore, create and satisfy our thirsty curiosity.
Life teaches us to be afraid, to stay put and mind our business. Life, experience and knowledge help bury that child inside each of us.
But an artist needs those qualities. An artist needs to be a child, to look at the world with wonder and joy, to feel no fear, or anything that can hinder or block the creativity and the curiosity that powers his work.
In his heart, every artist remains a child and every child is born an artist. It’s just a matter of whether or not he will let life and growing old and weary stop him in any way.
