Creativity
Engrave this Quote The creative person, the person who moves from an irrational source of power, has to face the fact that this power antagonizes. Under all the superficial praise of the creative is the desire to kill. It is the old war between the mystic and the nonmystic, a war to the death.

Talent
Engrave this Quote A man with a talent does what is expected of him, makes his way, constructs, is an engineer, a composer, a builder of bridges.

We have to expiate for this cursed talent someone handed out to us, by mistake, in the black mystery of genetics.
