…to write a work of genius is almost always a feat of prodigious difficulty. Everything is against the likelihood that it will come from the writer’s mind whole and entire. Generally material circumstances are against it. Dogs will bark; people will interrupt; money must be made; health will break down. Further, accentuating all these difficulties and making them harder to bear is the world’s notorious indifference. It does not ask people to write poems and novels and histories; it does not need them.

Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

 

 

sunt hic etiam sua praemia laudi,

sunt lacrimae rerum et mentem mortalia tangunt.

Vergil, Aeneid I
