They will tell you that it’s easy (it’s not). They will tell you that it’s fun (it is, but only sometimes). They will tell you that you must be born with it (not true).

Don’t think you’re anything special. Don’t think you’re as good as we are. Don’t think you’re smarter than we are. Don’t convince yourself that you’re better than we are. Don’t think you know more than we do. Don’t think you are more important than we are. Don’t think you are good at anything. Don’t laugh at us. Don’t think anyone cares about you. Don’t think you can teach us anything. And the bonus rule, which brings shame and vulnerability to the forefront: Don’t think that there aren’t a few things we know about you. This indoctrination is how you destroy any hope that art will happen. This is what the industrialist believes, and he used to be right. But no longer.
