I do not write for this generation. I am writing for other ages. If this could read me, they would burn my books, the work of my whole life.

Whatever you want to do, do with full passion and work really hard towards it. Don't look anywhere else. There will be a few distractions, but if you can be true to yourself, you will be successful for sure.
