Poetry And Anguish (2015-08-16)
"What is a poet? An unhappy person who conceals profound anguish in his heart but whose lips are so formed that as sighs and cries pass over them they sound like beautiful music." —Søren Kierkegaard
Although I don’t think of myself as an unhappy person, I can relate to this, because it is certainly true that anguish is often a wellspring of creativity. Fortunately so is joy.
