All geniusses are leeches, so to speak. They feed from the same source – the blood of life … We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.
Henry Miller – American writer and painter (1891-1980), from “Sexus” (1949)
