“I was inspired by the marvelous example of Giacometti, the great sculptor. He always said that his dream was to do a bust so small that it could enter a matchbook, but so heavy that no one could lift it. That's what a good book should be.”
It is said that John Milton was Blind
And the world that he served was Unkind
So he waited to See
For he couldn’t go blind in the Mind

Samuel fancied a Dream
But Xanadu vanished Abeam
Of the pipe and the Puff
For the love of the Stuff
He imagined a higher Esteem
"The problem is not so much to see what nobody has yet seen, as to think what nobody has yet thought concerning that which everybody sees"
