“There is, has been, and will always be a certain group of people whom inspiration visits. It’s made up of all those who’ve consciously chosen their calling and do their job with love and imagination.
“… Difficulties and setbacks never quell their curiosity. A swarm of new questions emerges from every problem they solve.
“Whatever inspiration is, it’s born from a continuous “I don’t know.
“…This is why I value that little phrase “I don’t know” so highly. It’s small, but it flies on mighty wings. It expands our lives to include the spaces within us as well as those outer expanses in which our tiny Earth hangs suspended. ”
