‘Creativity’ is what a vast beach remarks when a grain of sand is swept away by the ocean. If this sounds too tragic or too grand for you, it means only that you are too far back in the dunes. An artist’s […] notion of luck, or chance reflects essentially his [or her] proximity to the water or, if you will, to matter.

Joseph Brodsky, from section III of “A Cat’s Meow,” On Grief and Reason (Farrar, Straus, and Grioux, 1995)
