There is a vitality, a life force, a
quickening that is translated through you into action, and
because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is
unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other
medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not yours
to determine how good it is; nor how it compares with other
expressions. It is your business to keep the channel open. You
do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have
to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open. No artist is ever pleased. There is no
satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine
dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and
makes us more alive than the others.
~Martha Graham to Agnes De Mille
