Gabriele Rico

  • Nature operates by profusion. Think of the nearly infinite number of seeds that fall to earth, only a fraction of which take root to become trees; of those five thousand or so drones that exist solely to ensure the fertilization of one queen bee; of the millions of sperm competing so fiercely to fertilize one egg. Similarly, human beings engaged in the creative process explore an astronomical number of possible patterns before settling on an idea.

Gabriele Rico, U.S. educator, writer

(1937 - 2013)

Full name: Gabriele Lusser Rico.
