They must have hearts that can break

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

As to experience, intellectual and moral, the creative imagination can make a little go a long way, provided it remains long enough in the mind and is sufficiently brooded upon. One good heart-break will furnish the poet with many songs, and the novelist with a considerable number of novels.  But they must have hearts that can break.
