“ Wherever you are in your journey, just know that you have to keep going. One step after another, one brick on top of another, you will build the work you have envisioned. You’ll hit obstacles along the way. It’s inevitable. In regards to my work, not everyone will approach you in a collaborative spirit, not everyone will give you credit as they use your work as a springboard to boost themselves, and you have to decide what your response is going to be. Honestly, the way I think about it is just—face your work. If others want to conduct themselves without integrity, that’s their business. Continue in a spirit of generosity and openness. ”
