Wendell Berry
“There are, it seems, two muses: the Muse of Inspiration, who gives us inarticulate visions and desires, and the Muse of Realization, who returns again and again to say "It is yet more difficult than you thought." This is the muse of form. It may be then that form serves us best when it works as an obstruction, to baffle us and deflect our intended course. It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
Wendell Berry

Annie Dillard
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Henry Miller
“All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without the benefit of experience.”
Henry Miller

Pablo Picasso
“The chief enemy of creativity is good sense.”
Pablo Picasso

Omar Khayyám
“Dead yesterdays and unborn tomorrows, why fret about it, if today be sweet.”
