Giacomo Puccini

"What am I? I am a poet

What do I do? I write

How do I survive? I survive!

I live in cheerful poverty, like an important lord

Whose fortune is in his poems and songs

I live in a castle in the air,

And I'm a millionaire in dreams and creativity."

—Giacomo Puccini, Che gelida manina "A cold little hand," from La bohème.
