I realised today that if you have enough energy and enthusiasm and are willing to work really hard that you can achieve anything. I feel that I am inspired, but half of that is the fact that I am willing to turn up and play the game and push and push towards my goals.

There are certain people who talk about inspiration like it comes angling down from the sky like a lightning bolt, others who say they open themselves up and comes rushing through. I’m not going to totally dismiss that idea, but I want to say that each of these guys turns up every day and works hard … it really doesn’t just appear out of thin air.

I wish novels and poetry were born from parthogenesis but they aren’t and they never have been. There may be a sculpture inside the block of wood and a vision may come to an artist about what that sculpture is, but it still takes an artist to cut it out.

I love to work hard, and I would argue that that is actually is the inspired thing. Some people aren’t willing to work hard and don’t see that that is a problem. If you sit there and you don’t do something to seize the day – if you don’t do something to move forward – then you really don’t deserve, and won’t get the inspiration you expect to rain down on you.

There are no slouches on the best-seller lists; there are no true artists who are lazy. Really, just look at it. Try and find someone who did nothing resembling work to get where they are.
