10 Motivating Quotes from “BLESSED ARE THE WEIRD: A MANIFESTO FOR CREATIVES.”
Are you ready to step into your power as a writer, artist, or thought leader? The Writing Cycle has curated ten life-changing quotes by Jacob Nordby from BLESSED ARE THE WEIRD to help you beat writer’s block and remind you you are entitled to claim your place as a creator for the benefit of humankind.
This book reminds us that instead of letting the world ask, What makes you think you’re so special?
We can ask the world: What makes you think only special people are able make art? Or that creativity is an especially rare urge or skill?
When encouraged to make a living rather than chase dreams, challenge: why must these be mutually exclusive?
If someone scolds, shouldn’t you engage with family rather than playing in Imagination-land, consider: why have we created a society where people from all walks of life cannot regularly engage in imagination and art-making? What if these represent the very values we wish to model?
After all, artistic entitlement comes with responsibility: to deliver messages we’ve been given, accurately represent diverse viewpoints and acknowledge privilege, to follow leadings, actualize dreams, and engage rather than escape.
The world does not need more grifters or grinders . . . the world needs artists, dreamers, and people willing to tune in to the planet, the spiritual realm, the Collective Unconscious, cultural zeitgeist, social justice issues, and the whispers of our own souls.
