[commonplace] - A man of genius makes no mistakes. His errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery. - James Joyce

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. - Carl Jung

There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein. - Walter Smith

Everywhere I go I find that a poet has been there before me. - Sigmund Freud

I often quote myself; it adds spice to my conversation. - George Bernard Shaw

You can't depend on your judgement when your imagination is out of focus. - Mark Twain

Creativity is a bloody nuisance and an evil curse that will see to it that you die from stress and alcohol abuse at a very early age, that you piss off all your friends, break appointments, show up late, and have this strange bohemian urge (you know that decadent laid-back pimp-style way of life). The truly creative people I know all live lousy lives, never have time to see you, don't take care of themselves properly, have weird tastes in women and behave badly. They don't wash and they eat disgusting stuff, they are mentally unstable and are absolutely brilliant. - Toke Nygaard
