Let the artists tell it like it is

What we call success is about getting, getting, getting. Getting money, prestige, feeding the ego. When you follow that path in life you’re really breaking down the gates of hell. We’re taught in this country to worship getting things. No one tells you that the purpose in life is giving. We have the whole thing upside down.*
