The essence of genius

leave a comment »

wallaga lakeMozart said the following.

“The element which makes genius is not high intellectuality or imagination. One cannot make genius by mixing intelligence and imagination. Love, love, love… That’s really the essence of genius.”

Probably to be so passionately in love with what you are doing is needed in order to be genious. It is same for art and creativity. You also need at least one person who supports what you are doing or what you create. Otherwise you will have the same fate as van Gogh – well, his brother Teo supported him, though.
