Citações E. Lee Spence

„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

„Rocks are like wreck magnets and ships run aground today in pretty much the same locations and for the same reasons they did thousands of years ago.“
