The Monday Morning Quote #302

“To win through by sheer force of genius is one thing; to survive and continue to create when every last door is slammed in one’s face is another.

Nobody acquires genius—it is God-given. But one can acquire patience, fortitude, wisdom, understanding.

Perhaps the greatest gift [is] to love what one does whether it causes a stir or not.”

Henry Miller in To Paint is to Love Again.
