I am inspired by anything beautiful. Sometime it's a pair of eyes or flowing gorgeous hair, other times it's the sky or a sunset. I've been inspired by supple skin or the texture of a soft shirt. Nadine Velazquez

Every stroke you put down you have to go with. Of course you can rewrite, but the original strokes are still there in the texture of the thing. Joan Didion
Any good broadcast, not just an Olympic broadcast, should have texture to it.

That's my ideal. Bob Costas
