“Step one. Suppose you clear away all the happinesses that you distrust? Step two. Clear away all the unhappinesses that you have come to trust. Get rid of them too, don’t count on your miseries or your titillations. What will be left behind? Perhaps, after you’ve cleaned all that out, you might find in the back of your cupboard something like the theme of the Goldberg Variations. A deeply trustable happiness. A tender, discombobulating — but not discombobulated! — smile with just enough sadness and loss in it to be believable, to be endurable.”

Jeremy Denk's beautiful meditation on ”the mishmash of reverence and irreverence” in Bach’s Goldberg Variations.

Lest we forget, happiness is a learned capacity

“I feel this society has somewhere lost its sense of what art is. Art is expression. In expression you need 100% freedom, and our freedom to express our art is seriously being fucked with.” Kurt Cobain (via in-your-infection)

“The issue of craft is the difference between good and great. When you go from good to great, there’s this element of delight and magic that has to happen in design… That’s where great design comes from — great design changes us. We smile, we laugh.”

Fantastic Design Matters conversation with Maria Guidice, director of product design at Facebook and author of Rise of the DEO: Leadership by Design.

Giudice’s full conversation with Debbie Millman is well worth the listen.

I think this goes for about anything were craft is involved…art, writing, design, music…
