My ability to remember the lyrics of a song from the 1960s far exceeds my ability to remember why I walked into the living room.

view on failure

I think that if you want to grow in any field or improve at anything, failure is a part of the process. You can't expect to have success without some failure. When you are in the arts and you are trying to be commercially viable in some sense, you have to have a certain level of determination and braveness and possibly self-delusion to put yourself out there for scrutiny and consumption. You have to self-promote and part of that is accepting that some people will like your work and some people won't like your work and to not really get too swept up into either of those and to not see yourself as a failure if, for instance, something that you're really excited about isn't received in the way you wanted it to. I didn't go to art school so, for me, I have stumbled in some ways that I think other creators who learned those things initially might not have, but I don't necessarily regret that. I’ve committed myself to be a lifelong learner about how to be a better cartoonist and, also how to operate in the comics industry. I think, lastly that you have to strike a balance between being dissatisfied with your work and being proud of it. If you tip either way too much it's counterproductive.
—Whit Taylor, cartoonist

In 1976, Dr. Jonas Salk, creator of the killed-virus vaccine used in the 1950s, testified that the live-virus vaccine (used almost exclusively in the U.S. from the early 1960s to 2000) was the “principal if not sole cause” of all reported polio cases in the U.S. since 1961. -- Washington Post, September 24, 1976.

Alexandra Petri's advice to someone who works in a cubicle who wants to hide from coworkers...
I suggest bringing a large Snuggie to work. At first, just use it to keep your feet warm. Then, slowly, envelop larger portions of your body in it until only your head and hands are visible. Then during the night bring a mannequin in and work remotely from then onward.
