"What do you think an artist cares about? Does he think all day about fine wines and black tie affairs and what he's gonna say at the next after dinner speech? No, he lives only for that narcotic moment of creative bliss."
I remember watching this film years ago, when I was a design student, and relating to this particular quote on so many levels. Often times as artists, we lose motivation/inspiration, but once we feel that "narcotic moment of creative bliss" that they speak of in this scene (@ 0:38) - it is so precious and addictive that we don't want to let it go.
Hold onto your moments of creative bliss and enjoy the high for the long ride.
