Creating connections through the arts and across cultures

George Lucas’ fatherly advice for success in the arts

Remember that ultimately going for the money is 100% wrong.

Going for love of what you're doing is sort of 60% right.

You can fill that other 40% with a little practical thinking: I also want to make a living at this. I don't want to starve.

---George Lucas, Quoted in USA Today

  2. oh, that's interesting!

    assigning 40% to practicality is plenty. we spend way too much time on being "practical" and "realistic".

  3. Have you heard about George Lucas being proactive in getting the word out about youth voter registration? Lucas, as well as many other celebrities are featured in a new VoteForIt! 08' PSA. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpAOYskH1s8
