„Genius is the ability to look at things simply.“

—  E. Lee Spence
Full quote: Because of all of the shipwrecks I have discovered, people have called me a genius, but the truth is, finding wrecks isn't all that complicated. Get rid of your perceived notions, narrow everything down to the basic facts, and then just follow basic logic. Don't over complicate matters as, genius is the ability to look at things simply. Remember that and you will find the shipwrecks and their treasure. from interview of Dr. E. Lee Spence by R. Lunsford, published in Shipwrecks magazine, Volume 1, Issue #4, December, 1989, p. 94

„As a child, everyone dreams of finding treasure. There’s romance and drama. But as an adult most people aren’t going to spend their lives trying to find it.“
