Hunger & Art

From Hugh MacLeod's blog -

Willie Nelson, on why his new songs weren't quite as [cough] good as his old ones.

"Because I wrote my old songs when I was cold and hungry".

How true! Almost every creative artist's life follows the same curve - the passionate, provoking thoughts during the early stage, the mature, sublime creations at the middle & the trite, not-so-good works at the end.
