  • Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible. ― Edwin Land Woke up one day and felt like making an acoustic guitar. Amidst all the laughter and ridicule added the impossible component - carve it; two pieces only, no bending wood. Nine months later she sang. [...]
