And/but, apropos restrictions and creativity, James Falen (among other
things, translator of Eugene Onegin) said,

Every task involves constraint,
Solve the thing without complaint.
There are magic links and chains
Forged to loose our rigid brains.
Structures, strictures, though they bind
Strangely liberate the mind.
