Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heart-ache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master & recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth & beauty...There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, to discover what is already there. - Henry Miller
