“Persistence: we call it getting to know the Muse.”

  • Writer E. B. White: “A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.”
  • Painter Chuck Close: “Inspiration is for amateurs–the rest of us just show up and get to work.”
  • Composer Peter Tchaikovsky: “A self-respecting artist must not fold his hands on the pretext that he is not in the mood.”
