  • Apparently one impression we are making... is that creativeness consists of lightning striking you on the head in one great glorious moment.

  • I just had one of those 'what the hell are we doing' moments.

  • A master of improvised speech and improvised policies.

  • The only thing a master can teach is how to learn about yourself. There are no secrets. They are only techniques to waken yourself.
