Good Fortune

'Catching The Big Fish' - David Lynch

"It's such a tricky business. You want to do your art, but you've got to live. So you've got to have a job, and then sometimes you're too tired to do your art.But if you love what you're doing, you're going to keep on doing it anyway.

I've been very lucky. Along the way, there are people who help us. I've had plenty of those people in my life who've helped me go to the next step. And you get that help because you've done something, so you have to keep doing it.

So much of what happened to me is good fortune. But I would say: Try to get a job that gives you some more time; get your sleep and a little bit of food; and work as much as you can. There's so much enjoyment in doing what you love. Maybe this will open doors, and you'll find a way to do what you love. I hope you do."
