“One has to believe wholeheartedly in what one is doing, realize that it is the best one can do at the moment–forego perfection now and always!–and accept the consequences which giving birth entails. One’s best critic is oneself. Progress, realization, mastery, these are achieved as everyone knows, through continuous application, through toil and struggle, through reflection, meditation, self-analysis, above all through being scrupulously and relentlessly honest with oneself.” – Henry Miller, page 396 Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch
