"The poet wants his material; but wanting is no art, or rather, it is a gift. It is what is inexplicable and mysterious about genius, just like the divining rod, to which it never occurs to want except in the presence of what it wants." (Either/Or, Hannay trans. p. 63) Ok, so technically perhaps I shouldn't attribute this to SK, since so much of his work is pseudonymous, but SK is always in there somewhere!
