Synyster Gates: "I try to have one cool thing inspire me every single day and I try..."

Synyster Gates was interviewed by Ultimate Guitar, here's an excerpt:

It's not an easy thing to bring in new elements to your playing after you've played in a certain style for so many years. 
I've learned all I can learn! No, you never stop learning. You really don't and that's the cool thing about if it's frustrating and encouraging every day when you learn one thing. The older you get, it's more of the catch-22 because once you become friends with the fact you're only gonna learn something one piece at a time. There are very few things that just are. There's nothing that's the key to the universe. At this point, I think it really resonates with me and I've come to peace with that. So I just search for one cool thing that inspires me. I try to have one cool thing inspire me every single day and I try to learn it, understand it and apply it for all sorts of different applications.
