„The only real formula for real success is Work and Faith. All may achieve this sort of success for all may work and the only happiness, the only success, is in labor.“

—  Antonio Moreno Spanish-American film actor and director 1887 - 1967

—  Dawud Wharnsby Canadian musician 1972

The Sounds of Taqwa (2006)
Контексте: Inspiration comes from many places — experiences, places, people, books, and the work of other artists. As a writer, it is important to keep one’s senses open to the world around and then trying to capture those impressions to a page. Writing is sort of a game or puzzle to me — playing with words and concepts to present something new to listeners.

There are only certain words which are valid and similies (bring me my dictionary) are like defective ammunition“
