We are leading a creative revolution. Please join us. Our mission is to create, evolve, and keep creating. We encourage artists to push their boundaries and improve the creative world around them. Our code is as follows…
We create as much as we can and learn from every new project. Nonsense Society members grow with every new project and are always proud of where we came from. We love what we do and work at it constantly.
“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney, Entertainment Entrepreneur
Nonsense Society members aren’t afraid of what could be if they fail. We put ourselves out there as much as possible. Fear is our worst enemy. Instead, embrace it and convert it to something helpful. Be loud. Go crazy with your passions (all the best people do).
“Because of their courage, their lack of fear, they (creative people) are willing to make silly mistakes. The truly creative person is one who can think crazy; such a person knows full well that many of his great ideas will prove to be worthless. The creative person is flexible; he is able to change as the situation changes, to break habits, to face indecision and changes in conditions without undue stress. He is not threatened by the unexpected as rigid, inflexible people are.” – Frank Goble, Author
We network with our tribe and appreciate them. We learn from every new person we meet and are never afraid to ask for help. We realize the value of awesome relationships. Nonsense Society members are always ready to start new projects and make friends.
“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.” – Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist
We aren’t haters. We never use unhelpful criticisms to attack someone. If someone attacks us, we take whatever helpful feedback we can and move on. We realize that helpful feedback is ten times more powerful than negativity. Critical attacks are hurtful and insensitive. We just don’t take part in it. You know those people who leave nasty comments on your blog? Yeah, that’s not us.
“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.” – Benjamin Franklin, Author Inventor & Politician
Watch your pride.
Humility is important. Your ego is gross, gets in the way of growth, and makes people hate you. The best people find a healthy balance of humility and confidence. The world doesn’t owe you anything. It’s up to you to leave your own legacy. Nonsense Society members are confident yet humble.
“Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.” – Saint Augustine, Philosopher & Theologian
…and admire the world around you. Learn from it and get inspired. Nonsense Society members are active consumers of art, music, film, word, and all over creative outlets. All “new ideas” evolve from something that already existed. We’re always looking to innovate and improve.
“Genius means little more than the faculty of perceiving in an unhabitual way.” – William James, American Philosopher
…is subjective. We invent ourselves. Don’t let anyone try to tell you what you should be. There is no right way to do anything or a right way to be. Nonsense Society members know this.
“The human story does not always unfold like a mathematical calculation on the principle that two and two make four. Sometimes in life they make five or minus three; and sometimes the blackboard topples down in the middle of the sum and leaves the class in disorder and the pedagogue with a black eye.” – Winston Churchill, British Politician
Our artists have fun. We make jokes. We don’t take life seriously. Life is fun, art is fun, and we’re having fun doing what we do. Otherwise, what’s the point?
“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” – Mary Lou Cook, Artist & Activist
Believe in yourself. You are your own brand of outstanding. Do something with your life. Be hungry to grow and make new things. Nonsense Society members dream big and keep dreaming. Our drive and passion is unmatched.
“Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.” – Erica Jong, American Author
Never give up.
Have courage. Have tenacity. If you never give up, you will achieve more than you ever thought.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.” – Amelia Earhart, Aviation Pioneer and Author
With that being said. Get to creating, Nonsense Society.
