Creativity is intelligence having fun.

“Parents rarely let go of their children, so children let go of them. They move on. They move away. The moments that used to define them—a mother’s approval, a father’s nod—are covered by moments of their own accomplishments. It is not until much later, as the skin sags and the heart weakens, that children understand; their stories, and all their accomplishments, sit atop the stories of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones, beneath the waters of their lives.”

I stumbled upon this gem of an interview/short “documentary” two years back and it’s still as good and memorable as ever. I think what makes it so remarkable and worthwhile is Adam himself. His can-do gusto and attitude has a way of reminding the hardworking dreamer to keep going, to have passion, etc. Do watch if you have a spare four minutes :)

Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
