“There are certain people who work very committedly, who slog meticulously toward their goal, but without one stitch of inspiration. Then there are inspired people who never get a line on their gift – they lack the patience and discipline to bring the possibilities within their gift to form. The ideal is when these two extremes come into balance in the life of the artist.”
