We love ourselves a good quote and so we asked our community to share their favorite quotes and affirmations with us and we’ve highlighted some below.

Diana Creighton | Artist & Painter

Here’s a paraphrase of a quote from the writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez: “Each of us has three lives, a public life, a private life and a secret life”. I like it because it describes the artistic levels of any narrative, and I’m a narrative painter. I also like Picasso’s great quote: Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working. Read more>>

Perfect practice makes perfect, practice makes permanent. I find this extremely useful for my work-ethic in music. I find that lazy practice truly effects overall performance as a DJ. This quote has been apart of me since high school, my orchestra teacher was the one to drill perfectionism. Read more>>

Whenever I start to have any kind of doubt about anything related to my business I just put my head down and tell myself to “stay positive & keep grinding”.

Dwelling on a problem doesn’t help anything, working thru it does. Read more>>

My favorite quote is “believe all things are possible”. The key word in that quote for me is “believe”. If you believe that you will succeed, then you will.

Our favorite affirmation is: Seed time and harvest. It means that you must plant a seed, give it time and you will reap a harvest. This affirmation was the foundation to a quote of my own that is now featured on the backs of our shirts: Dreams become goals and goals become reality. We included this quote to remind people that your dreams are seeds that must be planted. The goals you set and accomplish in time will hep you measure progress until you can reap the harvest of the realty of a dream fulfilled. We like it because it is a steady reminder that there is always a way to have what you want if you are willing to put in the work. You always have seed that can be sown. You can sow your time, energy, money, talents, and more. Give it time and you will reap a harvest. Read more>>
