Roman Payne
“The ‘Muse’ is not an artistic mystery, but a mathematical equation. The gift are those ideas you think of as you drift to sleep. The giver is that one you think of when you first awake.”
Roman Payne

Anne Fadiman
“Muses are fickle, and many a writer, peering into the voice, has escaped paralysis by ascribing the creative responsibility to a talisman: a lucky charm, a brand of paper, but most often a writing instrument. Am I writing well? Thank my pen. Am I writing badly? Don't blame me blame my pen. By such displacements does the fearful imagination defend itself.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

Chimnese Davids
“I kept reaching for my muses,
my wandering muses, floating
on clouds filled with their passions.”
(Muses of Wandering Passions, p. 64)”
Chimnese Davids, Muses of Wandering Passions

“For this will cure him that is sick, and rouse him that is in dumps; one that has loved, it will remember of it; one that has not, it will instruct. For there was never any yet that wholly could escape love, and never shall there be any, never so long as beauty shall be, never so long as eyes can see. But help me that God to write the passions of others; and while I write, keep me in my own right wits.”
Longus (Longos), Daphnis and Chloe : The Love Romances of Parthenius and other fragments

Tamuna Tsertsvadze
“We artists are often counted as awkward by people who know nothing of how it feels to have another spirit live within you - the muse... Even some artists don't understand us, the mused ones, as our muses have faces and clearly appear to us, while all they have is the inspiration and not the muse. But ancient people knew of them... They said muses were goddesses and ruled upon the arts... It is true. When a muse forms into your mind and splits your spirit in two, you are already seized by it, controlled by it, and so you are bound to serve it and create masterpieces... It is not just we who create muses. They create us too. They form us into who we are.”
Tamuna Tsertsvadze, Zodiac Circle

“A Poet wrote this poem for me in 2017. Whenever I read this, I feel happy that I could touch someone deeply!

"It has not been long since he came to my life
He came like a soft wind
He made me feel like a king
He showed me who i am
He made me believe i can
No not just a simple man
A man who is so deep
Emotions feelings are in a heap
His mighty head high to keep
Though strong and hard
His heart is made of gold
Love kindness are decorated in folds
He holds the capacity of changing others
Making all the sisters and brothers
Feel that they are worthy
His words are so simple yet strong
Commanding yet soft
High pitched yet so serene
He smiles and makes the world smile
He feels the unfelt
He touches the untouched
He sees the unseen
He takes care of all without showing
He shows without pretending
His eyes sparkel with light
He is fearless no fright
He lightens up the room when he enters
And when he speaks is like a melodious symphony
That touch you deep down
He will inspire you
He will teach you
He will lend u a hand
And make u stand
He will be the eye for you to see
Thorough ur own heart
He never hopes bad for others
Neither does he bothers
About the negetivies
He is the positive man
The mighty happy soul
And if i talk about his soul
It the most beautiful soul
How can anyone feel so much?
And he has the capability of being himself
No matter what
He takes good care of others
And makes sure he is fit too
He wants smile in evryones faces
And he will make you smile
You meet him once
And here you go!
You have a changed life
Do you kno who the magic man is ?
He is the passionate writer ”
