Quote by Cyril Connolly
The artist is a member of the leisured classes who cannot pay for his leisure.
This quote suggests that artists belong to the privileged social class with the luxury of free time to focus on their craft. However, it also implies that artists may struggle financially and rely on other means to support their artistic pursuits. The artist may lack the financial resources to fully sustain their leisurely lifestyle, potentially highlighting the difficulty artists face in finding financial success while pursuing their passion.
I'm definitely doing better. I never realized that I would get the support that I've gotten from everybody - from my fans, to people that I've idolized my whole life. So it's overwhelming, it's amazing and I believe that everything happens for a reason so I'm in a really good place right now.
