Leonard Cohen // "You’ve got to be serious about what you do. And you’ve got to understand the price you pay for frivolity or just for’s a very high price, especially if you’re involved in this sacred material, which is about the human heart and human desire and human tragedy. If there isn’t some element of seriousness in the training of the artist or in the atmosphere that surrounds the enterprise, then this shabbiness grows and eventually overwhelms it. I think that’s what we’re in now."
