“If one aspires toward fulfillment in the pursuit of creative endeavors, one must cling to the philosophy that any creative endeavor is no more than the pursuit of self-enlightenment, and that the process of this inner search should not be confused with the dogma of academic intellect, but rather, the intellect of that inner being composed of the soul and the subconscious.”
