I love this Henry James quote, which Wallace Stevens cited in a letter:

“To live in the world of creation – to get into it and stay in it – to frequent it and haunt it – to think intensely and fruitfully – to woo combinations and inspirations into being by a depth and continuity of attention and meditation – this is the only thing.”

Think about it while reading this.
