Ananda Coomaraswamy

So the maker of anything, if he is to be called a creator, is at his best the servant of an immanent Genius; he must not be called “a genius but “ingenius”; he is not working for of or for himself, but by and for another energy, that of the Immanent Eros, Sanctus Spiritus, the source of all gifts. “All that is true, by whomsoever it has been said, has its orgin in the Spirit” (Ambrose).
