The tantalizing discomfort of perplexity is what inspires otherwise ordinary men and women to extraordinary feats of ingenuity and creativity; nothing quite focuses the mind like dissonant details awaiting harmonious resolution.

  1. Great quote – I find that one of the things that has driven me to become a writer is a gap between how I wish life would be (everyone happy, getting along, healthy, alive and so on) versus the sadness and turmoil that life sometimes does bring. The gap and the journey of dealing with it inspires creativity, and creativity helps me cope.
