1A man like me always has a feeling that some things are impossible to accomplish, and by trying to accomplish them he actually writes songs. I always reach towards something that is impossible and hard to catch and in that is all likeness of the race. If I ever stretch my fingers long enough to grab that which is not accomplishable, since it will be my goal there will be no more paths for me to walk through the thorns and write songs. That is the entire story and I am one of those who tell it."
