    You need to learn who you are inside, figure out what your feelings are, understand that; the key to self-knowledge. If you know who you are, then you are grounded through life. If everything is a mystery to you, then you are going to be in trouble.

    What I took away from the whole Talking Heads experience was the idea that if you know the kinds of restrictions you have to work within – budgetary restrictions, or creative restrictions or whatever – that can be great, that can even be a spur to creativity. That old idea of, ‘Oh, I don’t want anybody telling me what to do’, or ‘I want my creative freedom’ – that’s bullshit. What you need is to be told clearly what the parameters are. Because, if you allow them to do anything, most people will just waffle about.
