“Ah, but verses are so paltry an achievement if they are written early in life. One should wait, and gather meaning and sweetness a whole life long, a long life if possible, and then, at the very end, one might perhaps be able to write ten good lines. For verses are not feelings, as people imagine—those one has early enough; they are experiences.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, from The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge (Penguin Classics, 2009)
