Very few people possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort. If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass.

很少人有真正的艺术能力。所以,努力培养艺术能力即不伦不类也没用。如果你有热烈的、让人寝食难安的写作或绘画冲动,吃点甜食,这冲动很快就消失。
