A fantastic find

The amazing Austin Kleon pointed me to Quotenik, which is an amazing site for quotes from creative people.

I LOVE this entry, from a poet I have long admired:

Be a good steward of your gifts. Protect your time. Feed your inner life. Avoid too much noise. Read good books, have good sentences in your ears. Be by yourself as often as you can. Walk. Take the phone off the hook. Work regular hours.

“Everything I Know About Writing Poetry,” in A Hundred White Daffodils (Saint Paul, MN: Graywolf Press, 1999), 141.
