Musical Sufferings

Morning all!

Kicking off the start of another weekend with an amazing quote that I came across today; hope you like it-

“What is a poet? An unhappy man who hides deep anguish in his heart, but whose lips are so formed that when the sigh and cry pass through them, it sounds like lovely music…. And people flock around the poet and say: ‘Sing again soon’ – that is, ‘May new sufferings torment your soul but your lips be fashioned as before, for the cry would only frighten us, but the music, that is blissful.”

Beautifully dark and painfully true, wouldn’t you agree?
