"I’m interested in anyone who gets out of the house and away from that television and does something really exciting, whether that’s stamp collecting or stone collecting or painting or race car driving- as long as it’s active and as long as it involves a kind of critical and intellectual inquiry. I think is the culture of the amateur and we’re very fortunate to live in a time when there are a lot of them."
