Pearls from artists* # 246
* an ongoing series of quotations – mostly from artists, to artists – that offers wisdom, inspiration, and advice for the sometimes lonely road we are on.
Is love, taken together with art, not the only license to surpass the human conditions and to be greater, more generous, more unhappy, if necessary, than common man? Let us embrace the possibility heroically – let us renounce none of the advantages afforded to us by our animated state.
The Poet’s Guide to Life: The Wisdom of Rilke, edited and translated by Ulrich Baer
