Nothing came easy. I was just born with a need to explore every toolshop of my mind, and with long searching and hard work.

Many times I wondered whether my achievement was worth the loneliness I experienced, but now I realize the price was small.

Enthusiasm is the electricity of life. How do you get it? You act enthusiastic until you make it a habit.
Success can be wracking and reproachful, to you and those close to you. It can entangle you with legends that are consuming and all but impossible to live up to.
