It’s fine when you careen off disasters and terrifyingly bad reviews and rejection and all that stuff when you’re young; your resilience is just terrific.

Because, you know, resilience – if you think of it in terms of the Gold Rush, then you’d be pretty depressed right now because the last nugget of gold would be gone. But the good thing is, with innovation, there isn’t a last nugget. Every new thing creates two new questions and two new opportunities.

One of the things I noticed while I lived in New York City was how different the kids and teens were that grew up there versus, you know, my suburban upbringing. They have this innate resilience and toughness to them, and they’re incredibly self-sufficient, usually from a pretty young age.

I think professionally I admire people and the way they’ve handled their careers and being in the media. But the people that I used to inspire me and keep me going were my peers in Toronto – I would see the same girls going to audition after audition, and their resilience to do it again, and I found that inspiring.

I still enjoy playing some of those early Straits songs, and I’m proud of what we did, and certainly we had some great times. It’s what we all wanted when we were kids. But you’ve got to have the resilience to ride that thing, to pick up that ball and run with it. Because you will keep picking it up and keep running.
– Mark Knopfler
