Inspirational Quotes

Formerly I believed books were made like this:

Formerly I believed books were made like this: a poet came, lightly opened his lips, and the inspired fool burst into song ? if you please! But it seems, before they can launch a song, poets must tramp for days with callused feet, and the sluggish fish of the imagination flounders softly in the slush of the heart.

— Vladimir Vladimirovich Mayakovsky, The Bedbug and Selected Poetry
