Meanwhile in my head, I'm undergoing open-heart surgery. - Anne Sexton.
399"Be in love with your life. Be crazy dumb-saint of the mind. Believe in the holy contour of life. Remove literary, grammatical and syntactical inhibition, don’t think of words when you stop but to see the picture better and struggle to sketch the flow which already exists intact in mind. Write in recollection and amazement for yourself. Work from pithy middle eye out, swimming in language sea. Accept loss forever. Be wild undisciplined, pure, coming in from under, crazier the better." - Jack Kerouac, Belief & Technique For Modern Prose
