Tempermental Artists

"Because I intend to be quite direct in my comments, I am a bit concerned. For I know when we touch this subject we talk of people who are very gifted. And people who are very gifted, it would seem, tend to be temperamental."
- Boyd K. Packer, The Arts and the Spirit of the Lord, Feb 1, 1976

Judging by this comment, I think that Elder Packer has known an artist or two in his day.
