Everything is gestation and then birthing. To let each impression
and each embryo of a feeling come to completion, entirely in itself, in
the dark, in the unsayable, the unconscious, beyond the reach of one's
own understanding, and with deep humility and patience to wait for the
hour when a new clarity is born: this alone is what it means to live as
an artist: in understanding as in creating.
- Rainer Maria Rilke
