Interesting his comments about teachers making him feel small, that he was stupid.And that he was a lonely 5 year old building houses for ants.It shows that people really need to grasp there are numerous learning styles.

Made me think of these quotes:
Art is the stored honey of the human soul, gathered on wings of misery and travail. ~Theodore Dreiser, Life, Art, and America, 1917
The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep. ~Paul Strand
Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed.~Mark Twain
