STOP AND THINK – If you would create something, you must be something. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 19th-20th century German writer and statesman)

Most often artists and inventors do not create something merely from external influences and ideas. There seems to be some inward source that compels them to create or invent. Those who produce great works—whether artistic or inventive—are reflecting, to a large extent, their own character and essence.

The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord that sheds light on one’s inmost being (Proverbs 20:27). For in my inner being I delight in God’s law (Romans 7:22).
