Negative Capability Quotes

When an idea comes, spend silent time with it. Remember Keatss idea of Negative Capability and Kiplings advice to "drift, wait, and obey." Along with your gathering of hard data, allow yourself also to dream your idea into being.

What does the novel know? It has no practical or educational aim; yet it knows what ordinary knowledge cannot seize. The novel's intricate tangle of character-and-incident alights on the senses with a hundred cobwebby knowings fanning their tiny threads, stirring up nuances and disclosures. The arcane designs and driftings of metaphor - what James called the figure in the carpet, what Keats called negative capability, what Kafka called explaining the inexplicable - are that the novel knows.

— Cynthia Ozick

— Ruth Prawer Jhabvala
