That which we call genius has a great deal to do with courage and daring, a great deal to do with nerve. (Quote by - Nathaniel Branden)

It is the end of genuine thinking and the beginning of the final loneliness.The remarkable thing is that the cessation of the inner dialogue marks also the end of our concern with the world around us.
