Another Quote

This are the words from a single comics page, and quoting comics narration out of context doesn't always work, but here it is anyway:

"By then I knew who the best artists were in our class, who were the best writers. Out of 30 kids there were about ten that stood out and were good at something. The rest of us starting wishing.

I wish I could draw
I wish I could write
I wish I could dance
I wish I could sing
I wish I could act
I wish I could play music
I wish I could be funny.

By the 5th grade most of us knew it was already too late."
- Lynda Barry, What It Is, p.80
