“Since my barn burned down I now own a better view Of the rising moon.” —Mizuta Masahide (1657–1723)
“But gradually you come under the right influences, picking and choosing, and being selective, and then maybe your voice is the combination of 6 or 8 other voices that you have managed to blend in such a way that no one can recognize the sources.” austinkleon.com/2015/12/10/how…
“Your voice has an external source. It is not lying within you. It is lying in other people’s poetry. It is lying on the shelves of the library. To find your voice, you need to read deeply.” austinkleon.com/2015/12/10/how…
“Finding your people implies, quite strongly, that there are those who are not your people. And, I suspect, the more powerfully (and more narrowly) we identify with our people, the more powerfully we are tempted to distance ourselves from those who are not our people.” twitter.com/LMSacasas/stat…
