What Does It Take To Be An Artist

“Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting,

but ripening like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring

without the fear that after them may come no summer.

It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them,

so unconcernedly still and wide.

I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke
