"Don’t paint a simple physical description of yourself; don’t paint your job, or your stuff. You’ll never have the safety of being-in-itself; you’re wasting your time trying. Use your imagination; there are other voids with limitless potential. You can imagine what isn’t, and that tells you what you are, and what you want to be; make it happen. Who cares if you fuck up here or there? Paint over it. Humanity isn’t an 8x10 you get one shot at; nothingness isn’t a cup you get to fill once. As time goes on, you’ll see more possibilities, acquire new colors, learn new brushstrokes. But you don’t get any of that if you don’t start painting now. There’s a good chance you’ll never get it perfect. Whatever, bro. But you can know perfection through its absence; when you look at yourself and say, “almost! What if I just… that’s closer, even!” That’s how you can discover the truth of beauty - the drive to create is enough.

Of course, while you’re out there doing work, you’re going to run into other painters, other canvases; don’t panic. Why do people always panic? All of a sudden bros act like they’re not supposed to be painting, like they’re going to get in trouble or something, as if he’s supposed to go back to being a canvas when other painters around - what if he’s better than me? What if he thinks what I’ve made myself is dumb? So bros stop painting and let other bros start painting on them, over everything they’ve created. And do you think other people give a shit about what you come out as? If you let them paint your canvas for you, they’ll slap on whatever is convenient for them, and suddenly you’re back to being your job, your stuff, how you look; if you let others define you, they will define you out of existence. So don’t let them! But more importantly, don’t be that asshole.”

Jean-Paul Sartre summarized.

President Barack Obama jokingly mimics U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney’s ‘not impressed’ expression while greeting members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics teams in the Oval Office, Nov. 15, at the White House in Washington, D.C. Maroney’s expression became an internet sensation when during the ceremony for her 2012 Olympic vault silver medal she was photographed giving a brief look of disappointment with her lips pursed to the side. Steve Penny, USA Gymnastics President, and Savannah Vinsant laugh at left.

"Alcohol prohibition fell when a sufficient number of states enacted legislation repealing the state’s alcohol prohibition laws. With state police and prosecutors no longer engaging in the unpopular law, the federal government had little choice but to abandon the policy altogether. Today, history begins to repeat itself."
