Robert Henri – You Can Do Anything You Want To Do

You can do anything you want to do. What is rare is this actual wanting to do a certain thing; wanting it so much that you are practically blind to all other things, that nothing else will satisfy you…. I know I have said a lot when I say ‘You can do anything you want to do.’ But I mean it… Blunder ahead with your personal view… The real work of art is the result of a magnificent struggle.
