Inspiration belongs to the available mind

Ideas are like lovers: if you say “I’m too busy” frequently enough, they’ll talk to you less and less until they eventually fade away.

The more time you set aside for critical, creative, and contemplative thinking, the more intimate of a connection you’ll feel with interesting insights and intelligent ideas.

George Washington Carver observed, “if you love anything deeply enough, it will reveal its secrets to you.”

The realm of abstract ideas and artistic inspiration is no exception.

  1. “What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more’ … Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.”
    ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Song
