Those who say that creativity is the result of circumstances, such as a happy childhood, caring parents or a favorable cultural environment are entirely off-track.
They do not see that creativity is an urge that is a soul-matter and that is even stronger when it is met with indifference or outright hostility.
The best spirits are those that revolt and that are eternally unsatisfied about their condition. And we have no need for saviors, for the human condition as it is, is enough to itself. It has produced enough geniuses through all times, and this without fertilizers, artificial flavoring and well-meaning hens.
The best sons and daughters are those who ran away from their homes, for they have understood the true value of survival instead of complying with the death of a homey and schizoid complacency.
