“great ideas, like humor, come from the corners of the mind, out on the edge…the edge gives us a special attitude. cutting edge, leading edge, the edge of inspiration, on the edge of our seats. it’s a place to shake off conventions and worm out formulas and shake out ideas. new ideas. the edge is exciting, risky and extreme and on the edge you can see all sorts of things you can’t see from the center” (Keith ferrazzi, Lovemarks: The Future Beyond Brands, pg. 18).
i like the edge. it’s nice out there. and i would have to agree that once you’re there, you do start to see things differently and you start to do things differently. the view is quite nice. and there’s a bit of a kick to everything. i think it is so important to push your proverbial creative envelope and be on the edge of inspiration. i know i need it. it keeps things alive and relevant and fresh. this is good, very good. and i want to be that kind of artist.
so there you have it–an inspirational quote to get you through the weekend and to give you a taste of what is to come on monday.
