Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
~Calvin Coolidge

jnsq=je ne sais quoi

If we want to know the truth we must always go to nature. In nature there are no contradictions. Contradictions can only exist in the human mind, an unbalanced human mind.

Humans should be what they are born to be: free and independent!

Is creativity a process where a question is submitted to the mind for resolution? And by way of some kind of “magic” inspiration answers are forthcoming?

A humans mind, immortal in nature, is “connected” to other minds both mortal and immortal.
Human beings have ideas, imagination, and they wonder. These can give rise to a purpose.
This purpose has a destination, a goal and it may require something to be made to achieve that goal.

The human mind has the wilful creative potential to find solutions to reach the goal.
The engine of creativity is to begin with something, anything, relating to the imagined solution.

Something can be modified and modified yet again until the solution is satisfactory.
Nothing can not be modified, hence nothing can be achieved.

man was born to be free and independent. Connected to the universe.
