“… So I am working most of the time. […] … to engage my interest, to penetrate my boredom with myself and my disinterest in my own opinions, to penetrate those barriers, the song has to speak to me with a certain urgency.”
“I can’t discard a verse before it is written because it is the writing of the verse that produces whatever delights or interests or facets that are going to catch the light. The cutting of the gem has to be finished before you can see whether it shines.”
This is a beautiful perspective which can be applied to life and love equally. Sometimes we quit before we even try, but only if we invest all of ourselvers, all that we possibly can we know whether it is worth letting go of the idea, the lover, the piece of work or not.
