Stravinsky, in his Poetics of Music in the Form of Six Lessons:

All creation presupposes at its origin a sort of appetite that is brought on by the foretaste of discovery. This foretaste of the creative act accompanies the intuitive grasp of an unknown entity already possessed but not yet intelligible, an entity that will not take definite shape except by the action of a constantly vigilant technique.
Is it too Romantic to be totally intoxicated with the creative process itself?

Maybe, but I'll still take mine with a twist of liminality...
