Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. 
Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.

Paul Ickovic guides us through our landscape. Like the botanist discovering the intricate variety of plants and their individuality, like the geologist unearthing the formations of layer upon layer of rock and shale, like the physicist splitting the atom, Paul wants to discover, unearth, break apart the mystery of human existence. But unlike the botanist, the geologist, and the physicist, he is not so interested in solving the riddle as in illuminating its infinite complexity. 
Patricia Griffith, from the Foreward to In Transit
