A lifetime

"When you look back on a lifetime and think of what has been given to the world by your presence,  your fugitive presence, inevitably you think of your art, whatever it may be, as the gift you have made it to the  world in acknowledgement of rhe gift you have been given, which is the life itself. ..The work is not an expression of the desire for praise or recognition,  or prizes, but the deepest manifestation of your gratitude for the gift of life." --Stanley Kunitz
