Artists and doubt

Just a quick thought I found in my archives...
The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize. -- Robert Hughes

It reminds me of a comment I heard from an animator friend several years ago. While I'm wild-guessing the exact words, the gist of it has stuck with me ever since...
Even the best artist has room to grow. If I ever get to the point where I think that I know everything, that I have nothing left to learn...I'm in deep trouble.

Man that is so Right. So wait, I tell myself I'm horrible all the time...does that mean I'm actually good? No? Oh...alright. I guess I really do suck. ;)
