Read in January, 1984

One of my writing bibles. I have two well-worn copies of this book--one marked up and one clean. This is an essential book for anyone who wants to write.

Rainer Maria Rilke
“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for to the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place.”
