“The moment of inspiration does not come to someone who lolls around expecting the gift to be free.  It is no giveaway.  It is the pearl for which we have to pay a great price, the price of intense loneliness, the price of our vulnerability which often allows us to be hurt; the less readily understandable price of hurting those we love, even though in less radical ways than Gauguin.”  Madeline L’Engle
