“Forget about being an expert or a professional, and wear your amateurism (your heart, your love) on your sleeve. Share what you love, and the people who love the same things will find you.”
Austin Kleon, Show Your Work!: 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered    

“I have worn my heart on my sleeve because it is too painful to carry it inside my chest.
When I carry it on my sleeve, it has the freedom to exist, to beat in rhythm with the Universe.
I feel like I’m more alive and yes, there are those who out of curiosity will say or do things that can cause its delicate existence to feel pain and sorrow.
I would rather deal with that, than to put it back in its little cage where it knows nothing else but the rhythm of my body and my Ego.
My heart was never meant to be part of my Ego.
My heart was meant to experience the Soul.”
C.C. Campbell, The Stolen Light of Women: A Quest for Spiritual Truth Beyond Religion

Some people wear their heart up on their sleeve. I wear mine underneath my right pant leg, strapped to my boot.
Ani DiFranco
