Creative inspiration

Two quotes I’ve stumbled across recent that I find inspiring:

The man whose heart is imprisoned in something because he hasn’t got what he needs to be creative: Such a man often doesn’t know himself what he might do, but he feels instinctively: Yet I am good for something, yet I am aware of some reason for existing! Something is alive in me: What can it be! – Vincent Van Gogh

One needs to constantly remind oneself to play with the abandon of the child who is just learning to play the cello. Because why is that kid playing? He is playing for pleasure. He is playing because making this sound, expressing this melody, makes him happy. That is still the only good reason to play. – Yo Yo Ma
