“…go into yourself and explore the depths whence your life wells forth; at its source you will find an answer to the question whether you must create. Perhaps it will turn out that you are called to be an artist. Then take your fate upon yourself and bear it, its burden and its greatness, without asking for that reward that might come from without. For the creator must be a world for himself, and find everything within himself, and in Nature to which he has attached himself.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke
