The artist..(Henry Miller)



Seems to be 

A certainty

A permanence

In everything..

A conveyance

A gift 

Of the writer

Of the artist...

"What irony to inform the artist what is wrong with his work--as if that mattered! The artist speaks out of his inner certainty, and no matter how far astray he may seem to go, no matter how wild, how erratic his words, he is always a thousand times more right, more true, than those who presume to judge him. If he is an artist. As for the rest, those who call themselves artists, they do not matter."

-- Henry Miller
