Beware the restrainer!

ENERGY IS ETERNAL DELIGHT NOT REASON OR RATIO. Always let your creative projects be governed by this principle.

Energy is an eternal delight, and he who desires, but acts not, breeds pestilence. Those who restrain desire, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained; and the restrainer or reason usurps its place & governs the unwilling. And being restrain’d it by degrees becomes passive till it is only the shadow of desire. William Blake in his ‘Marriage of Heaven & Hell.’

From Blake’s ‘Marrigae of Heaven & Hell’
