Here are a few quotes:
"There is no surer way to stagnate as an artist than to do it for the reward, or to hold back from putting it out there for fear of never getting one."
"'But who am I to put my art into the world?' I have no idea. Yet. And neither do you. It's only in the making of that art, whatever it is, and putting it out there, that you and I will find out."
I will be re-reading this on a regular basis. Such wise, wise words. Thank you, David!
(If this resonates with you in any way, then I highly recommend reading the original article on David's blog. Oh, and while visiting his site, check out his resources for photographers. He has some very helpful e-books.)
