Quote of the day, by Nevalalee
The poet accomplishes his design instinctively, but at the same time with knowledgeable awareness in him; knowledge has become a second instinct, and during the design of the poem, knowledge works in him as if it were nature alone. When the work is almost completed, when the inspiration has pronounced its will, then, and only then, does the knowledge become conscious knowledge once again.
—Edith Sitwell, A Poet’s Notebook

_Knowledge is limited, Imagination encircles the World. _Albert Einstein
Knowledge is not enough by itself, this is acquired through learning, it’s not innate to the mind, and perfected, although it becomes an automatism, and a second instinct for a poet, he needs Inspiration, and Imagination, rather than learned from experiences, and besides to it his muse, be it Clio, or one of the eight other muses. To be inspired, for a writer, to find le- mot-juste, for a musician the right note that puts all things together in harmony , to a symphony , and for painter, the light in a given time of the day, to fix that moment precisely on a canvas, and for them, it’s only at that instant that one’s unleashes his imagination, The poet finally comes up with a work in a few words, that we call it a poem, a unique master piece. _Kalimelo
