Henry Miller

In a few moments the fire died out—and remained dead for the rest of the evening. In about twenty minutes the floor became icy cold…We sat in our overcoats, collars turned up, hats pulled down over our ears, our hands stuffed deep in our pockets. Just the right atmosphere in which to produce masterpieces, I thought to myself…If captured with the brush during a siege of exaltation it could arouse ridicule or indignation on the part of an unseeing beholder; it could also make a sensitive individual bleed with anguish. But it would never bring pocket money, nor heat nor light, nor even apple fritters.

Henry Miller, The Amazing and Invariable Beauford Delaney
