Quote: Creativity Series #1 – Friedrich Schlegel

All artists are self-sacrificing human beings, and to become an artist is nothing but to devote oneself to the subterranean gods. The meaning of divine creation is primarily revealed in the enthusiasm of annihilation. Only in the throes of death is the spark of eternal life ignited.

Over the next five days, I’ll be posting quotes that I’m considering for the first page of The Day I Wore Purple. They’re not book quotes, but (semi)inspirational quotes about creativity.

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted something of substance! Blogging will be a little slow over the next month as I forge ahead on this dang rewrite.

Hope you enjoy these five quote plaques! If you like them, share them!
