Hey, it was Mozart's birthday yesterday?  You knew?  Mozart wrote hundreds and hundreds of pieces of music.  Some pretty good stuff too.  Of course geniuses had more time on their hands back then.  They weren't endlessly watching Robot Wars, or The Kardashians.    When Mozart moved away to Vienna, it was after he'd been "fired for the third time . . . decided enough was enough," and left to be a freelancer.  Sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do.    story           

Principle in the type:  'That luminous part of you that exists beyond personality--your soul, if you will--is as bright and shining as any that has ever been.  Bright as Shakespeare's, bright as Gandhi's, bright as Mother Teresa's.   Clear away everything that keeps you separate from this secret, luminous place.  Believe that it exists, come to know it better, nurture it, share its fruits tirelessly."    George Saunders
