Nathan’s Final Push will inspire you to do what you love no matter how stupid it might seem or feel, and to allow your loves to die if that is what feels right.
“What you don’t realize is that when you want to be an artist, you immediately become the janitor, secretary, payroll, shipping, receiving. Everything.”
“I went on a mushroom trip and found the courage to hire one of the assistants that I had been interviewing all week.”
“The message of my show has become, The universe wants you to be alive. So you just choose happiness.”
“My broader theory is that this is the eyes of an infant artificial intelligence. I think it is literally that important.”
“The thing that you constantly need to realign yourself with if you’re going to make it as an artist is that it has to be about love.”
“The path of least resistance for you as an artist will always be the path of greatest joy.”
“Do exactly what you love no matter how stupid that feels.”
“I’m just gonna do what I love and trust that the Universe will sustain me.”
“Follow your love. Follow your love. Follow your love.”
