Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic.

Your shutting yourself off to everything else because of something you can never have. We could have enough, Jenny.' 'Well for a year, perhaps, before you realised you loved more than I did you. I would hate that. That's why you'll be my friend but never my soulmate. And we both deserve soulmates.

The artist's job, I think, is to be a conduit for mystery. To intuit it, and recognize that the story-germ has some inherent mystery in it, and sort of midwife that mystery into the story in such a way that it isn't damaged in the process, and may even get heightened or refined.
