"Creativity is a fragile, delicate flower which must be cautiously cared for and protected from the harsh elements of 'human weather."
Don't take your creativity for granted. Protect it from the onslaught of negativity. If the people around you make fun of your creative talent, find new friends. The negative words of those we trust can destroy our creative desires. Surround yourself with people who encourage and support you. Creative talent is fragile and easily destroyed.
