"Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things."
Miranda - The Tempest, John William Waterhouse, 1916
"Oh, I have suffered, with those that I saw suffer"
Miranda is one of the main characters of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. She was banished with her father Prospero (the overthrown Duke of Milan) to a remote island at the age of three, and in the subsequent twelve years has lived with her father and their slave (Caliban) as her only company. They both plot to restore Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skillful manipulation.
She is openly compassionate and unaware of the evils of the world that surrounds her.
