"I do not search, I find. Searching that is starting from existing circumstances. And wanting to find the known. Finding, that is entirely new. All ways are open and what is found is unknown. It is a daring, a holy adventure. The uncertainty of such risks could in fact only be taken by those who feel comfortable in uncertainty, who in not knowing, and not leading, are led, are pulled by the destination rather than determining it." - Pablo Picasso
