04 John Coltrane on being the breakthrough creative:

From a post by Maria Popova on Brain Pickings

Truth is indestructible… History shows (and it’s the same way today) that the innovator is more often than not met with some degree of condemnation; usually according to the degree of his departure from the prevailing modes of expression or what have you. Change is always so hard to accept.1

… may we all find truths to tell and the courage to tell them regardless of whether those around us are ready to accept them…
