Embracing the Wide Sky

"Every brain is amazing [...] Anyone with the passion and dedication necessary to master a field or subject can succeed in it. Genius, in all its forms, is not due to any mere quirk of the brain; it is the result of far more chaotic, dynamic and essentially human qualities such as perseverance, imagination, intuition and even love. Such an understanding of the human mind enriches, rather than detracts from, the popular appreciation of the accomplishments of highly successful individuals."
~ Daniel Tammet in Embracing the Wide Sky: A Tour Across the Horizons of the Mind
