I've grown really tired of the phrase - "they're artists, they do it for the love, not for the money" - because while this is true, it also doesn't illuminate the fact that being an artist is in fact a job, and you should get paid a living wage for doing your job....and people should do jobs they like, even love, and are good at, that way they do a better job at their job, and society reaps the benefits......I think it's more accurate to say, "they're artists, they do it because they understand it has a value so individually, socially, and culturally important, that it must happen at all costs, because the value of humanity cannot be measured in dollars"

...but I understand that doesn't quite roll of the tongue the same way....
