Personal Quote:

Ideas come when they come. My father, because he spoke German, called it 'Einfallen.' They start in heaven and then they may come down. ... Some days you have no ideas at all, for weeks or more. They don't want to come. And you've got to work for them. Some people are more creative than others. Talent is not given to everyone. [2015] See more »
