Your Job Is To Preserve Yourself
The painter was known for his passion and constant state of madness. He was so strange that some people often talk about him hanging upside down from a tree just to see the world in a different light! The painter was a great teacher and people came from all over France to learn from him and see his work. When a journalist went to write about him; the painter told him that there is a world where people are driven by worldly desires but he didn’t fall into their trap and followed his own absurdity…that is what made him a free man and that is why he can keep art alive!
Your job is to preserve yourself, not to descend into their hole. It's a relief when you arrive at this place, the point of absurdity, because then you are free, you owe them nothing.
