 " - - - Manufacture is intelligible, but trivial: Creation is great, and cannot be understood.  Thus if the debater and Demonstrator, whom we may rank as the lowest of true thinkers, knows what he has done, and how he did it, the Artist, whom we rank as the highest, knows not; must speak of inspiration, and in one or the other dialect, calls his work the gift of a divinity. "

Thomas Carlyle ( 1775 - 1881 )
The Harvard Classics
