On being an egomaniac

If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that… I believe in what I do, and I’ll say it. (John Lennon)

To all artists: It is my opinion that the people who would be the harshest on you, are operating from a base of personal fear… fear that either you’ll make it, or that you won’t.

Most importantly, a fear that you might be right.

What the hell is an egomaniac anyway? And how do you know you are one?

They used to say if you are afraid you might be crazy, then you really aren’t.

Substitute the word “egomaniac” for “crazy”, and you have it right.
