Natumbok mo, Oscar Wilde! Natumbok mo!!!

i'd like to share something i came upon just a while ago...Oscar Wilde could not have put it more succinctly than this:

"My attitude toward all this is that a true artist who believes in his art and his mission must necessarily be altogether insensible to praise or blame. If he is not a mere sham, he cannot be disturbed by any caricature or exaggeration. He has the truth on his side. And the opinion of the whole world should be of no consequence to him."

~Oscar Wilde

What do you think? Didn't he get it right a century or so ago?
