Phrase detail

The artist's life must necessarily be full of conflicts, because within itself it carries two competing forces: on the one hand the simple human desire for happiness, satisfaction and security in life and on the other a ruthless passion that can reach the point of passing above all personal desires ... There are almost no exceptions to the rule that a person must pay dearly for the divine gift of creative fire.
