It takes a heap of sense to write nonsense.
Form follows function.
Here's to the Crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent.
They Imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that has never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do. Think Different.
It's got to sell, I've got to live.
—D. H. Lawrence

Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that is that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.
If I had all the money I had spent on food and drink, I would spend it on food and drink.
