Trust me- that artist was probably less appreciative of his gift then what he should be. If you love your life as an artist it won't matter what life throws at you. You will love everything and get excited over the littlest of things like creating a new work of art you didn't know you could do. It's true that being an artist is the hardest way to make a living, but when you have this wonderful talent you could do anything with how can you hate life? That speaker doesn't know how good he has it.
