    There’s a lot of enthusiasm here and, with work, that enthusiasm could be tempered into quite a lot.

I love this sentiment. It's so true. Sometimes trying too hard pushed past the mark. Sometimes the film is 30 minutes too long and a book has an extra and unnecessary 100 pages.

Good artists make good art.

Great artists trust editors.

(In my humble opinion)
