"Since the artist cannot exist outside his time, certain social pressure has affected him, certain…"

“Since the artist cannot exist outside his time, certain social pressure has affected him, certain critical opinion has directed him. He feels the majority rejection, so for whom does he make art? For himself first, for the opinion of other artists next, and specifically those artists in his own mores and in his own aesthetic realm. But his world and his realm is the same world that all others inhabit. He has no secret code or key, no special foresight, environment, brilliance, erudition. He exercises the right of vision – projection – by his own choice. His preference is to be a working and recognized member of his culture, and to have his work accepted.”

- David Smith (1906-1965) ‘Aesthetics, the Artist and the Audience’ (via chrisvillacillo)

Having said that about Omnifocus: thumbs up for the iPad app. Desktop app = clunky. Reminds me of Kinkless GTD (from whence OF came).

“Avoid worrying about whether what you write will be worth reading. Instead ask whether it is worth writing; and, if so, how it may best be written. Avoid worrying about whether what you write will be original. When originality occurs at all (which is rare), it occurs as a by-product of conviction.”

- “Time and the Art of Living” Robert Grudin
