 Don’t be afraid to take bad pictures, because good pictures are the mistakes of bad pictures. 
 The power of our Muse lies in her meaninglessness. Even the style can turn one into a slave if one does not run away from it, and then one is doomed to repeat oneself. 
 The only thing that counts is curiosity. For me personally, this is what creativity is about. It will express itself less in the fear of doing the same thing over again than in the desire not to go where one has already been. 
 Surprise, unpredictability: these are the main materials of creativity.
