Throughout your childhood, you are wet clay. Moldable, impressionable, flexible. Capable of becoming anything. Sometimes a mess. But always ready for change and improvement. And always ready for your big scene with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.
Most people remain wet clay throughout their schooling. And into the beginning of their careers.
Then people separate into 2 groups.
- Those who dry and (James) harden. (Either they throw themselves into the kiln or are simply left out to dry.)
- Those who continue to evolve.
Don’t harden. Remain wet clay. Remember that you are not finished until you are dead, or give up. Keep growing, learning and improving. Keep working towards those goals you set when you still felt like wet clay. Because you are wet clay as long as you think you are.
