"Ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong simple "I must," then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferant hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse."
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet.
