help with quote?

I'm trying to find a quote about dispassionate creativity.

I remember that it was about (or to, or from) a writer (or possibly a composer, or a painter). And the point was that one could not create a piece of (music, art, writing) about love (or passion) without being totally cold (or heartless, or passionless). I have been googling on the key words without success so I decide to ask you people.

Help, sort of.

I couldn't figure out which (of many hits) it might be, so y'all go take a look at Bartleby.com. It's a great place to find all sorts of quotes (and is useful for other sorts of research, as well).
