A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on art, poetry, life, blame, self-knowledge, and poverty

If your everyday life seems poor, do not blame it; admit to yourself that you are not enough of a poet to call forth its riches; because for the creator there is no poverty and no poor, indifferent place.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)
