There are a couple rules I live by when it comes to my work. A few of these rules I’ve learned from reading manga of all places.
- Never create a superficial piece of work. Turn every drop of blood into your ink.
- Do not indulge yourself in the flowers of temporal popularity. Dig up the soil to spread your roots deep below. Even if you attain some status, don’t linger on it.
- If there is a choice between peace and the storm, choose the storm.
- Never be discouraged after a defeat. Research your defeat and let that be the core of your victory.
- Never think that you are always correct, let every body around you be your master.
