Sadly, sometimes the highest treason an artist can commit is to become a success.
You work, you produce, you endure, and the second it all catches on – you have somehow upset the balance of things.
Your peers cannot accept your success.
Nothing is of itself – everything is by comparison.
Envy is such filth.
“The highest treason a crab can commit is to make a leap for the rim of the bucket.“
–Steven Pressfield, The War Of Art
