Treat A Stone Like Gold

Wood and nails reveal their bare skin like nude models, saying, “I’m a wood” or “I’m a nail.”
Making a nail more beautiful than it really is, and making wood happier than it really is… I work with things which are unattractive, useless, unlovely and ordinary. They are found everywhere, but unnoticed by anyone and passed by all other artists.
“Treat a stone like gold!” Unattractive-looking nails gather around to become jazz, and uselessly bent tree branches gather around to become magnificent classical music. There must be a distinct difference between sound coming from a single violinist and sound from 10 or 20 violinists.
Why do people say, “The more, the better?”
What is the world of “All in one, one in all?”
