America is now wholly given over to a d--d mob of scribbling women, and I should have no chance of success while the public taste is occupied with their trash ó and should be ashamed of myself if I did succeed. What is the mystery of these innumerable editions of the Lamplighter, and other books neither better nor worse? ó worse they could not be, and better they need not be, when they sell by 100,000.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

I never really cared about achieving commercial success. As soon as I was signed to a record company, I felt like I made it because I was able to quit my day job. To me, success was just not having to have a boss and not having a day job. So Iíve been living my own version of success since the early í90s when I first got signed and I havenít had a job since then. Iím pretty happy about that. When I did have a little bit of commercial success, it really didnít suit my temperament at all. Iím a terrible public person. Iím happier where I am now.

Juliana Hatfield

The discovery of the good taste of bad taste can be very liberating. The man who insists on high and serious pleasures is depriving himself of pleasure; he continually restricts what he can enjoy; in the constant exercise of his good taste he will eventually price himself out of the market, so to speak. Here Camp taste supervenes upon good taste as a daring and witty hedonism. It makes the man of good taste cheerful, where before he ran the risk of being chronically frustrated. It is good for the digestion.

Susan Sontag

Judges of elegance and taste consider themselves as benefactors to the human race, whilst they are really only the interrupters of their pleasure ... There is no taste which deserves the epithet good, unless it be the taste for such employments which, to the pleasure actually produced by them, conjoin some contingent or future utility: there is no taste which deserves to be characterized as bad, unless it be a taste for some occupation which has mischievous tendency.

Jeremy Bentham

Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting ó in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard ó reaching for the highest that is in us ó becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success. Success is the maximum utilization of the ability that you have.
