"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

I know no advice for you save this: to go into yourself and
test the deeps in which your life takes rise; at its source you will find the
answer to the question whether you must create. Accept it, just as it
sounds, without inquiring into it. Perhaps it will turn out that you are called
to be an artist. Then take that destiny upon yourself and bear it, its burden
and its greatness, without ever asking what recompense might from outside. For
the creator must be a world for himself and find everything in himself and in
Nature to whom he has attached himself.
