"Trying to learn to use words,
and every attempt Is a wholly new start,
and a different kind of failure

Because one has only learnt to get the better of words
For the thing one no longer has to say,
or the way in which
One is no longer disposed to say it.

And so each venture Is a new beginning,
a raid on the inarticulate"


As with all of the 'Arts', Love is the Key.

"Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius."

~ Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

"Prayer does not mean simply to pour out one's heart. It means rather to find the way to God and to speak with him, whether the heart is full or empty."

~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
