“If your everyday life appears to be unworthy subject matter, do not complain to life. Complain to yourself. Lament that you are not enough poet to call up its wealth.
(Do) you not still have your childhood, this precious wealth, this treasure house of memories? Direct your attention to that. Attempt to resurrect these sunken sensations of a distant past.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters To A Young Poet
