Misbehaving Minds

John Lennon recalled in an interview that he wrote “Nowhere Man” after working five hours in vain. He was about to give up when all of a sudden inspiration struck. "‘Nowhere Man’ came, words and music, the whole damn thing as I lay down.” As a young man Steve Jobs had taken a class in calligraphy. He didn't really know why he did this, until ten years later he was trying to give his Mac an appropriate font. Oscar Wilde found a perfect way to describe creativity: “A writer is someone who has taught his mind to misbehave.”
