From my ever-present bedside copy of Rainer Maria Rilke's "Diaries of a Young Poet"

the creative individual....
"The creative individual is the more spacious person, the person out beyond whom the future lies. the artist will not for all time endure alongside man. When the artist, the more mobile, the deeper of the two, becomes ripe and strong enough to engender his own kind, when he lives what now he dreams, the man will wither away and little by little, die out. The artist is the eternity that juts into our days."
