Take the time...

If you read bad stuff, you will learn to write bad stuff. If you listen to only bad music, you ill grow up to compose lousy music as well. If you do not take the time and make the effort to listen and to study and to reflect on and to engage yourself deeply in the things that move you deeply, then it will be difficult to begin to make anything that will move anyone else very deeply at all.
