"But This I Know"  
Shamelessly stolen from trascendenza~

“But this I know; the writer who possesses the creative gift owns something of which he is not the master – something that, at times, strangely wills and works for itself. […] Be the work grim or glorious, dread or Divine, you have little choice left but quiescent adoption. As for you – the nominal artist – your share in it has been to work passively under dictates you neither delivered nor could question – that would not be uttered at your prayer, nor suppressed at your caprice. If the result be attractive, the World will praise you, who little deserve praise; if it be repulsive, the same World will blame you, who almost as little deserve blame. […] He wrought with a rude chisel, and from no model but the vision of his own meditations.”

– Charlotte Brontë (as Currer Bell)
