the divine gift of creative fire

The artist’s life cannot be otherwise than full of conflicts, 
for two forces are at war within him [or her]—on the one hand, 
the common human longing for happiness, satisfaction and security in life, 
and on the other a ruthless passion for creation 
which may go so far as to override every personal desire … 
There are hardly any exceptions to the rule 
that a person must pay dearly for the divine gift of creative fire.
