“Suppose I were to give you a key ring […] with a hundred keys, and I was to tell you that one of these keys will unlock it, this door we’re imagining opening in onto all you want to be, as a player. How many of the keys would you be willing to try?’
[…]
‘Well I’d try every darn one,’ Rader tells Lyle.
[…]
‘Then you are willing to make mistakes, you see. You are saying you will accept 99% error. The paralyzed perfectionist you say you would stand there before that door. Jingling the keys. Afraid to try the first key.” 
― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest 

“MY STATEMENT IS: LIFE AIN’T EASY, IT’S SIMPLE. IF YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING, JUST-DO-IT-YOURSELF. I THINK EVERYBODY SHOULD FOLLOW THEIR DREAM, CAUSE YOU’LL ONLY HAVE ONE TICKET. LIVE A LITTLE FOR FUCK’S SAKE.”
