“The world is full of fucking ‘why’ man. You tell people something, they’ll tell you ‘why’. Throw a rock, and you’ll hit somebody with ‘why’. Like, ‘hey, man, I want to make a movie.’ ‘Why?’ ‘Why do you think you can do that?’ ‘Why?’ ‘Why?’ ‘Nobody else is doing it. Why are you doing it?’
You go out and find ‘Why not?’ You surround yourself with ‘Why not?’ People who are just like, ‘Why not?’ Where you’re like, ‘Hey, man, I’m gonna try something!’ and they’re like, ‘All right, why not? Let’s give it a shot.’ People who will try to help you try to help you do your dream, make your dreams come true and shit, and you’d do the same for fucking them. We’re all in this together, and it costs nothing to encourage a fucking artist.
Just like Wayne Gretzky said, like, ‘you miss 100% of the shots you never take’. It’s always worth the fucking shot — I’m talking about artsy shit, you know: writing a blog, fucking making some music, making a movie, making a fucking cupcake store or a fucking knitting store or fucking putting together a YouTube clip, just anything that’s just not fucking ‘oh, we must do this because it’s part of my job’ or ‘this will get me money’. Some shit you just do to see if it can be done.” ― Kevin Smith
