The creative person wants to be a know it all. He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth - century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen.
