Creating and begetting


In the case of man, that which he creates is more expressive of him that that which he begets. The image of the artist and the poet is imprinted more clearly on his works than on his children.

from The Destiny of Man, by Nicholas Berdyaev

Quoted by Dorothy L Sayers, in the Preface to her book, The Mind of the Maker.
