The truly creative mind in any field is no more than
this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly
sensitive. To him a touch is a blow, a sound is a'.
noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy,
a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is
death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the over-
powering necessity to create, create, create--so that
without the creating of music or poetry or books or
buildings or something of meaning, his very breath
is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out
creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency
he is not really alive unless he is creating.
