zealous efforts

“Control in that sense is the artistry. I have studied and practiced the control of delivery, timing and phrasing. But control is a workman’s skill, achieved by practice, by rote. Control is easy, but it can smother creativity, when left to its own devices. Creativity is a flower which must be fostered and tended until it blossoms. Control is the hoe that cuts away the weeds. But if the hoe cuts the flower in its zealous efforts to control the environment, nothing beautiful ever grows.”
