Favorite Compulsiveness Quotes

1. "Aren't you, like me, hoping that some person, thing, or event will come along to give you that final feeling of inner well-being you desire? Don't you often hope: 'May this book, idea, course, trip, job, country or relationship fulfill my deepest desire.' But as long as you are waiting for that mysterious moment you will go on running helter-skelter, always anxious and restless, always lustful and angry, never fully satisfied. You know that this is the compulsiveness that keeps us going and busy, but at the same time makes us wonder whether we are getting anywhere in the long run. This is the way to spiritual exhaustion and burn-out. This is the way to spiritual death."
Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen
2. "Daemonic compulsiveness can kill as easily as it can save.The true novelist must be at once driven and indifferent. VanGogh never sold a painting in his life. Poe came close withpoetry and fiction, selling very little. Drivenness only helps ifit forces the writer not to suicide but to the making of splendidworks of art, allowing him indifference to whether or not thenovel sells, whether or not it's appreciated. Drivenness is troublefor both the novelist and his friends; but no novelist, Ithink, can succeed without it. Along with the peasant in thenovelist, there must be a man with a whip."
Author: John Gardner
