Huuklyeand Cinquor on Writer's Block

Though you think
It makes no difference

When not writing, do not
I repeat do not

Take no for an answer.

Moderator’s comments: One more illustrative affirmation of Cinquor’s masterly command of Negative Capability or just another example of a jejune tendency to overstate the obvious?


  1. Ah, there is great wisdom in that negative injunction to not to "Take no for an answer". I think Cinquor, like his great rival Hegel, understood that Truth arises out of the rubble.

  2. I have no way of being certain but I think Cinquor would not say no to your comment.
