Art is the right hand of Nature. The latter has only given us being, the former has made us men.
There's something so romantic about being broke in New York. You gotta do it. You have to live there once without any money, and then you have to live there when you have money. Let me tell you, of the two, the latter is far better.

Each new generation is reared by its predecessor; the latter must therefore improve in order to improve its successor. The movement is circular.
We distinguish the excellent man from the common man by saying that the former is the one who makes great demands on himself, and the latter who makes no demands on himself.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
On the scale of someone who's really laid-back about stuff and someone who worries a lot, I fall more towards the latter.
