Favorite Quote:
“The fields that need to be plowed are endless. You will never be done plowing the fields. Just plow what you can, and rest. Don’t worry about getting it done, because it’s never going to get done. And that’s the way I am with my life. In my work, a lot of things never get done, and I’m all right with that. Most people think that they can’t finish the fields, so they don’t even start. By the end of the day, I’ve done so much more than anybody else that it’s crazy, just because they’re fretting about that they can’t get it done. I just went out and did it.”- Ian MacKaye
