Chuck Jones Quote of the Day: President of Easel Painting

"When you go into any form of creative work there is one tiny drawback. You can't win. By going into creative work you have to face a rather dismaying fact. You can't become president of it. There is no such thing as president of easel painting or playing the flute, it's bad enough to be called a flautist-but to realize that you can't even be the greatest flautist is sad indeed."

–Chuck Jones, page 48, Stroke of Genius, A Collection of Paintings and Musings on Life, Love and Art
