a kick in a man's words

if you are an independently working designer, your conditions will not be much better than those of so-called free artist. you will always be dependant on economic facts. the only way you can make it is to work more or less in teams; at the same time you must be able to change your living conditions and be happy under every condition. but always you must be free to say 'no'. you have to exchange security for adventure, you must be able to drive for many years the best car in the world and go by foot tomorrow. with this risk you buy your freedom and your existence as a moral human being. under these conditions you will become a good designer.
