Are you a eunuch in a harem?



It is always easier to look at something and express what you do not like about it. How it can be better. Why wasn’t it done in a certain way. Immensely easier.

To create? Now that is a different story. Creation takes commitment. It takes raw guts. The sweat of effort. With no understanding of these, you just won’t know how it feels like.

You won’t know the how. You won’t know the why.

Sure you can try to imagine, project yourself into the situation. But it’s not the same. You can say the way I swim is wrong. But if you are going to be at the side of the pool yelling your bronchials away and not getting wet like me? Then, you just won’t know.

Create, don’t criticize.

"Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how it's done, they've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves." - Brendan Francis Behan
