Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes" creator Quote floors me

Thursday, January 9, 2014

"Well, coming at a new work requires a certain amount of patience and energy, and there’s always the risk of disappointment. You can’t really blame people for preferring more of what they already know and like. The trade-off, of course, is that predictability is boring. Repetition is the death of magic."

- This quote is an except from a recent interview with Bill Watterson in Mental Floss magazine

Such a great quote, the last line really resonates with me. I think I will go to sleep tonight with that as the last thought in my head.
