    You have little time left, and none of it for crap. A fine state. I would say that the best of us always comes out when we are against the wall, when we feel the sword dangling overhead. Personally, I wouldn't have it any other way.

    ..and since we're in the theme, one from Ralph Gibson himself..."You see, I'm not interested in mediocrity in photography. I'm not interested in selling cat shit to dogs. I just want to do my own thing. If people like my work, all the better. If they don't, too bad. - Ralph Gibson

    Thus spake Messr. Cartier-Bresson:
    For us the camera is a tool, the extension of our eye, not a pretty little mechanical toy. It is sufficient that we should feel at ease with the camera best adapted for our purpose. Adjustments of the camera – such as setting the aperture and the speed – should become reflexes, like changing gear in a car. The real problem is one of intelligence and sensitivity.
    And -
    The difference between a good picture and a mediocre picture is a question of millimetres – small, small difference. But it’s essential. I don’t think there’s so much difference between photographers, but it’s that little difference that counts, maybe.
    "My idea of a good life is that I wake up in the morning, go out and look around and make four rolls of film a day." - Josef Koudelka

    "There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are." - Ernst Haas

    "Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment." – Elliott Erwitt

    And we could also quote from Billy Madison...

    "In the ten years that I have been coming here there are generally the same kinds of people, and one has the feeling of being on an island. On an island you know everybody and everybody knows you... What we have in common is photography, which is practiced by so many, is understood by so few. Maybe this is a reason we return to <APUG> with the hope of being understood and, perhaps seen... So we come to <APUG> to recuperate, communicate and show what we have done, or, perhaps what we want to do."

    Ernest Haas, 1970. <Miami>

    That's a really nice quote.
