    What makes a successful animation?

    There is a mystique around art and artists that suggest that great art comes from a streak of inspiration deep within the mind’s creative center. However, it takes more than a stroke of genius to make successful animation. The idea itself is just the first step toward achieving this goal.
    Letting this idea grow, one must be able to open up emotionally and intellectually. Creating animations is also about understanding the basics and possibilities of motion and visual effects. After all, Creations Rely On Possibilities

    This is one of my favorite speech, Terence teach us to think for ourselves and to enjoy every moment of our lives.

    This is one of his many speeches that changed my perception of life, Terence made me realized how we can enjoy our lives at it's full capacity by enjoying every little thing that happens through our every day live.

    Do what you feel, not what your told.

    Think for yourself.

    Be not afraid, you are a god, a creator with unlimited potential.

    "I have realized that the past and the future are real illusions, that they exist only in the present, which is what there is and all that there is."
    -Alan Watts

    "Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
    -Howard Thurman

    "There are two ways to look at life. One is though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is"
    -Albert Einstein

    "What blinds us, or what makes historical progress very difficult, is our lack of awareness of our ignorance."
    -Terence McKenna

    -------------------

    "I always thought death would come on the freeway in a few horrifying moments, so you'd have no time to sort it out. Having months and months to look at it and think about it and talk to people and hear what they have to say, it's a kind of blessing.

    It's certainly an opportunity to grow up and get a grip and sort it all out. Just being told by an unsmiling guy in a white coat that you're going to be dead in four months definitely turns on the lights. ...

    It makes life rich and poignant. When it first happened, and I got these diagnoses, I could see the light of eternity, a la William Blake, shining through every leaf. I mean, a bug walking across the ground moved me to tears."
