like lightening

There’s a story behind that lightening bolt tattooed on Patti Smith’s knee. A couple of years ago, she summed it up very eloquently in an interview:

No amount of fame or fortune is worth compromising oneself because in the end all you’re left with are your deeds, how you carry yourself and your work. Everything else will fall away.

Something to think about.
