“A great book begins with an idea; a great life, with a determination.”
I would respectfully disagree with Louis.
A great book also begins with determination. An idea is nice, but it is just that: an idea. It takes action, drive and focus to turn and idea into a great book.
The same holds true to all facets of the creative arts: if you lack action, you are left with ideas – and they are as numerous as grains of sand. Collect them and you will have nothing. Act upon them and you will everything.
