creativity and rilke

“If your everyday life appears to be unworthy the subject matter, do not complain to life. Complain to yourself. Lament that you are not poet enough to call up it’s wealth. For the creative artist, there is no poverty–nothing is insignificant or unimportant.”

Ranier Maria Rilke
