Most of us grew up adoring Madonna and still today her quotes could make quite a difference.
Had a rough day at the gallery, your opening didn’t go exactly the way it should have or some baby artist copied your signature painting? No worries, Madonna will help you getting mentally out of those dilemmas. These are our favourite quotes for bad career days.
If your gallerist tells you, that you need to stop acting so selfish:
“I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.”
When your dad is not very happy seeing you quitting your science studies for becoming an artist:
“Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another.”
When you send a pitch to a client and they complain that your proposed fee is far beyond their budget:
“A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want.”
When your boss complains that you are asking for too much too fast:
“Better to live one year as a tiger, then a hundred as sheep.”
When a critic asks you a silly question and you don’t really have an answer:
“I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.”
When you are invited on a panel but are being asked to cover your own travel expenses.
“I always thought I should be treated like a star.”
When people start talking behind your back as you started dating this cute art dealer.
“Everyone probably thinks that I’m a raving nymphomaniac, that I have an insatiable sexual appetite, when the truth is I’d rather read a book.”
When someone asks you for the meaning of a particular work at your opening:
“When I’m hungry, I eat. When I’m thirsty, I drink. When I feel like saying something, I say it.”
