If you ever find that you're the most talented person in the room,
you need to find another room.

The artist is a collector. Not a hoarder, mind you, there's a
difference: Hoarders collect indiscriminately, artists collect
selectively. They only collect things that they really love.

Creative people need time to just sit around and do nothing.

If you’re worried about giving your secrets away, you can share
your dots without connecting them.

By Francine Van Hove

In the end, creativity isn’t just the things we choose to put in, it’s
the things we choose to leave out.

If you copy from one author, it’s plagiarism, but if you copy from
many, it’s research.

Eat breakfast. Do push-ups. Go for long walks. Get plenty of sleep.
