The Question (ID Number 513)...

    Your books have touched me and my life in ways that are unimaginable and indescribable to you. I am an excellent writer and a strong advocate of your beliefs. I will work for you for free until the day I die, promoting and advocating the belief system that you have so thoroughly inspired in me.

    ...and the response:

    I'm glad to hear that you want to promote my ideas, but you shouldn't think of this as working for ME. If you made a study of relativity and explained it to a friend, you surely wouldn't think of yourself as working for Albert Einstein. Once you have them in your head, my ideas are yours, so you're working for yourself and for all humanity. (And as far as I'm concerned, I'm not offering anyone new "beliefs." What I'm saying should only be accepted as something that makes sense, not as a belief system.)
