A Quote by Henry Miller on writing, creativity, truth, beauty, personal power, and inspiration

Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heart-ache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because se we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he gets desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive form the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up to discover what is already there.

A Quote by Henry Miller on invention, re-create, uncover, discover, open, embrace, and become one

We invent nothing, truly. We borrow and re-create. We uncover and discover. All has been given, as the mystics say. We have only to open our eyes and hearts, to become one with that which is.

A Quote by Henry Miller

They have a wonderful therapeutic effect upon me, these catastrophes which I proofread.  Imagine a state of perfect immunity, a charmed existence, a life of absolute security in the midst of poison bacilli.  Nothing touches me, neither earthquakes nor explosions nor riots nor famine nor collisions nor wars nor revolutions.  I am inoculated against every disease, every calamity, every sorrow and misery.  It’s the culmination of a life of fortitude.  Seated at my little niche all the poisons which the world gives off each day pass through my hands.  Not even a fingernail gets stained.  I am absolutely immune.  I am even better off than a laboratory attendant, because there are no bad odors here, just the smell of lead burning.  The world can blow up–I’ll be here just the same to put in a comma or a semicolon.  I may even touch a little overtime, for with an event like that there’s bound to be a final extra.  When the world blows up and the final edition has gone to press the proofreaders will quietly gather up all the commas, semicolons, hyphens, asterisks, brackets, parentheses, periods, exclamation marks, etc. and put them in a little box over the editorial chair.  Comme ça tout est réglé...
