Advice to the Young: Be True to Yourselves and Forge New Pathways (feat. photo, Patti Smith)

“Build a good name. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a lot of money or being successful; be concerned with doing good work” – Patti Smith.

So what advice do we give the young? Listen to those who have gone before you, take the knowledge, the advice, the warnings and admonitions, but in the end you must find your own way. Like Patti Smith who shares the advice she received from William S. Burroughs who told her to “build a good name. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a lot of money or being successful; be concerned with doing good work.”
