Inspiration is the windfall from hard work and focus.

Inspiration needs disease, injury, madness.

Inspiration comes when you stick your elbows on the table, your bottom on the chair and you start sweating. Choose a theme, an idea, and squeeze your brain until it hurts. That's called inspiration.

Inspiration is allowed to do whatever it wants to, in fact, and it is never obliged to justify its motives to any of us.

Inspiration is often the child of desperation.

When I was young, people lived from paycheck to paycheck. Today, it seems like they live from credit card payment to credit card payment.

When I was a kid, there were no credit cards. Instead, retailers offered layaway plans. My mom would go to a store, such as a furniture outlet, choose the sofa she wanted, and put it on layaway. That meant she put a little money down to hold the sofa, and every payday she'd pay a little toward the purchase.

When I was a kid I drew like Michelangelo. It took me years to learn to draw like a kid.

When I was a youngster I lived with different families. I nearly always felt closer to the man of the house. Maybe because I always dreamed of having a father of my own.

When I was 11, the whole world was closed to me. I just felt I was on the outside of the world.

When I was 19, I made my first good week's pay as a club musician. It was enough money for me to quit my job at the factory and still pay the rent and buy some food. I freaked.
