I have long been told that to be happy in life you should incorporate yourself with people that are sincere in everything they do, honest in every endeavor that they're into. But most of all true to the love that they have for you. Same philosophy that applies in painting and in drawing. That to be able to create a masterpiece, you should give your best and that you will be able to produce a masterpiece that is a product of hard work and sincere dedication. As Joybel C once said ""I am an extremely sincere individual. I am sincere, to a fault. One of the many things that I have come to realize, to learn, is that sincerity must be reserved and given only to those who deserve it. And one must save one's emotions, channeling them only to the people who are worthy of it. One must not throw one's pearls to the pigs." In this career, to be able to endure and last, you should instill in yourself the virtue of sincerity and honesty. Lack of it, and the forgetfulness of it, either intentionally or not is stupidity. Sincerity even into the troublesome situation...is honourable. Remember this phrase from David Foster Wallace - "An ad that pretends to be art is -- at absolute best -- like somebody who smiles warmly at you only because she wants something from you. This is dishonest, but what's sinister is the cumulative effect that such dishonesty has on us: since it offers a perfect facsimile or simulacrum of goodwill without goodwill's real spirit, it messes with our heads and eventually starts upping our defenses even in cases of genuine smiles and real art and true goodwill. It makes us feel confused and lonely and impotent and angry and scared. It causes despair."
