Writing Advice, Henry Miller

“One doesn’t become an artist overnight.  First you have to be crushed, to have your conflicting points of view annihilated.  You have to be wiped out as a human being in order to be born again as an individual.  You have to be carbonized and mineralized in order to work upwards from the last common denominator of the soul.  You have to go beyond pity in order to feel from the very roots of your being.”

…Henry Miller, The Tropic of Capricorn
