Direct experience is best, but then you’d need a thousand lifetimes. Books have that wonderful quality of showing you other lives. They can be a great nourishment.
— Manuel Puig
Nobody will stop you from creating. Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. That is the way to make your soul grow - whether there is a market for it or not! The kick of creation is the act of creating, not anything that happens afterward. I would tell all of you watching this screen: Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. Make it as good as you can. Don’t show it to anybody. Put it where nobody will find it. And you will discover that you have your reward.
— Kurt Vonnegut (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
