Some quotes that may inspire you:
"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."
"It’s hard to stand out with your art when it’s crowded with celebrity narcissism, desperate marketing attempts, and kids in their basements spending all day trolling the internet. But I feel like what’s going to make it out of the rubble that this industry is collapsing into is simply sincerity. Be yourself, be good at what you do, be confident in what you do, don’t be a afraid to be a leader, and most importantly, be honest. Those things will pay off in the end."
