This is an amazing quote, Heart Love don't get me wrong; but I am genuinely fearing Scootaloo's life right now. Lovely Shoujo (Aaaaah Nooo) [V3]

This is both inspiring, and fear inducing.

It's from Samuel Beckett's "Worstward Ho" www.samuel-beckett.net/w_ho.ht…

Real interestingly worded poem.

If you're going to fail at something you might as well fail with style.

Sure. :)

Thanks.

Just to clarify: non commercial use. One print on my wall.

Obviously. I can't imagine anyone buying prints of my stuff. XD

When you fail better, you're really just doing worse at achieving what you wanted to in the first place.

No. That would be failing worse.

Your art, and the quote, motivated me to go to the gym tonight despite being tired. Thanks! This is now my motivational wallpaper. :)
