Wisdom from Polonius
Isaac Beshavis Singer
"Often I sit down and I don't know what I am going to write."
"I do not seek. I find."
"Waves, waves! Everything comes in waves."
"Inspiration is a guest who is reluctant to visit the lazy."
"Genius is one per cent inspiration, ninety-nine per cent perspiration."
