Second novels are bears. As are other people’s expectations for them. I think taking the time you need with the second book is key. Writers spend years and years on their first novels and then are often expected to turn out a second at warp speed, a recipe for failure.
Jandy Nelson
When I landed the first 900 at the XGames, it was just – it was a personal achievement. It was something that I have strived for for years and years and years, and in a lot of ways had given up on it. But I just didn’t think of the resonance that would have.

As a performer, you get your ‘thing.’ You’re the deadpan comedian, or the mad one, or the sexy one, and then you rely on that and mine that seam for years and years and you kind of forget who you were.

Julia Roberts
My first show was called ‘I Know I’ve Been Changed’ in ’92. I tried to do this show for years and years. It kept failing over and over and over again. Every time I went out to do the show, nobody showed up. I was like, ‘What is this about?’

The packaging of Led Zeppelin’s IV doesn’t have the name of the band, doesn’t have the name of the album: It’s got a guy on the cover with a load of sticks on his back.

Trip Lee
There are times when I’m super-overwhelmed, and everything feels like it’s hitting me in the face at once, but I think what’s keeping me calm, and who I am by staying true to myself, is my whole family being so supportive and keeping me grounded. They treat me the exact same way they treated me years and years ago.

The thing with me is, about that – about rock and all that – years and years of crate-digging, listening to old music, you kind of start to connect the dots.

I’ve held the title for years and years.

When you’re young and you first come onto the scene, you’re fearless. You just go for your shots and don’t really think about the consequences. But as you play on through years and years, you get punished for those misses, and gradually, that leaves scars. It dents your confidence a bit.
