    I invented nothing new. I simply assembled the discoveries of other men behind whom were centuries of work. Had I worked fifty or ten or even five years before, I would have failed.

To teach that a comparatively few men are responsible for the greatest forward steps of mankind is the worst sort of nonsense.

    You must concentrate on one thing, then everything else becomes easier. But if you concentrate on many things, you achieve nothing. My guru Baba Allaudin Khan told me this when I was 15 and I was torn between playing sitar or being a dancer. It changed my life.

    Just be ordinary and nothing special. Eat your food, move your bowels, pass water, and when you’re tired, go and lie down. The ignorant will laugh at me, but the wise will understand.
