MARRIAGE…AS IN ART OR WRITING…REQUIRES KNOWING HOW TO RELATE TO ANOTHER.
There are, I hazard, saints of art who have simply waited mutely all their lives rather than profane the purity of a single page with anything less than what is perfectly appropriate and beautiful, that is to say, with anything less than what is true…
Writing is like getting married. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed in one’s luck.
-Iris Murdoch. The Black Prince.
