A CONVERSATION WITH THE MAN BEHIND THE WORDS
We've been inspired by your words. Who inspires you?
No particular living person, but there are some poets I greatly admire, such as A.E. Housman.
You've written thousands of Brilliant Thoughts. Have you ever found yourself in a creative block and if so, what did you do to overcome this time?
Never had a creative block that couldn't be helped by a good night's sleep.
Did you find it hard to keep to your self-imposed 17 word limit?
Challenging, but not really hard. Eventually it became almost automatic.
Is there a character behind the sayings?
Did you ever think your words would become so popular?
I never expected to become rich and famous from them -- (and I really haven't).
Which Brilliant Thought is your favourite?
"Fundamentally, there may be no basis for anything."
What are you most proud of?
I have no pride.
Has your outlook on life changed overtime with the coming of the digital age?
Everything seems increasingly miraculous.
