Schwarzenberg family coat of arms. Sedlec Ossuary, Czech Republic.
The ossuary is home to the bones of 40,000 to 70,000 people, many who died of the Black Death in the 14th century. The ossuary was begun in 1511, but it wasn’t until the late 19th century that František Rint, a woodcarver, was employed by the Schwarzenberg family to put the bone heaps into order.

'Oh go, my dear! You're sure to find
The perfect match! A kindred mind
To share your days and share your nights -
To roam the world and see the sights!’
And so she went… and there he stood.
Her date - a man the doctor should
Have turned around, in truth, at birth,
For womankind - perhaps the Earth.
His face was mostly overbite.
His shirt said ‘Hitler had it right!’
His eyes were small. His teeth were bad.
He stank of crap. His name was Chad.
‘Hello!’ he screamed, with eyes ablaze:
‘You wanna play the mayonnaise?
I’m racist, sexist, bald and old,
But I can cook!’
She whispered: ‘Sold.

If you’re going to do anything creative for a living the hardest and the most important piece of advice you need to get is that you have to be doing it because you love doing it and you have to anticipate and become comfortable with the possibility of doing it in vain with no reward for your entire life. Picture a future where you have spent decades doing it in complete darkness and silence with no one responding to it and ask yourself whether to not when you get hit by a bus by the end of that you’re going to die thinking ‘I blew it’ or if you’re going to die thinking ‘at least I did what I loved’ and if the answer is the latter, keep doing it. It probably won’t happen to you because if you do feel that way the you probably will eventually find people that are looking for what you’re doing.

The second piece of advice is figure out what you love, figure out who you are and scream in your voice, from your rooftop and wait for people who want to hear you to find you. Don’t continually change who you are in an attempt to succeed in wrangling an audience. Just plant your feet and do what you want to do more than anything in the world because that’s what you’re going to be good at and that’s what people are going to want to watch you do.

I think as any artist, as anybody who makes any thing, even if you’re making chairs out of wood or walls out of brick your job is to leave this world with your impression of it. Your job is to remove the top of your head and push something onto the top of your brain that will leave an image of it on it so that when you go away there’s some record that this is how you perceived the world and specifically you. That’s your only job, that’s the hardest job, that’s the easiest job. Whether you’re a stand up, a writer, a carpenter, I really think you just have to be as honest and transparent about how you view the world as possible.

I’ve heard people say that the trouble with the world is that we haven’t enough great leaders. I think we haven’t enough great followers. I have stood side by side with great thinkers—surgeons, engineers, economists, men who deserve a great following—and have heard the crowd cheer me instead. I love my profession. I like playing baseball. I love the fans too, but I think they cheered too loudly, and they cheered for the wrong man.
