My dear,

Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.

People go about thinking that the people who contribute most to this world (the most originality, the most fun, the most spontaneity in their work) are those who go about leading wild, violent, unordely, drug, and party filled lives. But as the saying goes ‘the majority is always wrong’.

The ones who sit down every day to work on their art, the ones who get up early to catch the worm, the ones with schedules that are kept – they are who contribute most to life.

Falsely yours,
Gustave Flaubert
