#Ethiopia: Where Life Is Governed From Above →

Highly Sensitive Person
The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him… A touch is a blow, A sound is a noise, A misfortune is a tragedy, A joy is an ecstasy, A friend is a lover, A lover is a god, And failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create… So that without the...
