A quote from Adam Gnade's The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin' Sad.

Text says: "Warning: if you try to create something 'different' 1) You will feel so alone sometimes it will be harrowing. You will be broke while your friends with steady (safe) jobs eat well and go to the movies and buy nice clothes and take vacations. (You won’t get vacation time but you’ll travel more than anyone you know. Sometimes you’ll be on the road so much you won’t remember the way home. Don’t be afraid to ask for directions.) 2) You’ll make money in vast jerking convulsions and then you won’t see any for a long time. You’ll be hungry. You’ll get angry. You’ll get goddamn furious. You’ll want to pack it in. You’ll rethink everything and decide to 'quit' or 'drop out of society' or 'disappear forever.' And you’ll do this at least once a day. But you’ll stick around because some part of you has always believed. 3) Your heart will break and your mind will change inwardly and you will grow inside in tangles and curving passageways while the rest go dry and wither and blow away. You will learn every day. 4) You will sleep well and you will hold your head high. You’ll see what the rest do and know that you are on the edge of something tall and dark and strange. 5) You will never be bored. You will never be, like, 'Uh, I don’t know, what do you wanna do?' 6) You will have things you’ve made and holding these things in your hand will make your heart swell. 7) You will be free."
