A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on ability, creator, god, divine, inspiration, inventor, intuition, art, creation, and creativity

Every really able man, in whatever direction he works - a man of large affairs, an inventor, a statesman, an orator, a poet, a painter - if you talk sincerely with him, considers his work, however much admired, as far short of what it should be. What is this Better, this flying Ideal, but the perpetual promise of his Creator?

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
