Every artist was first an amateur. --- Every step towards the goal is a goal on it's own. --- You can't plow a field by turning it over in your mind. --- Don't follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. --- The greatest mistake you can make in life to be continually afraid that you will make one. --- The more you say, the less people remember. --- The secret to failure is to please everyone. --- --- --- My name is Kyle, and this profile is a sample of my journey so far.
