„Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.“

—  Virginia Woolf English writer 1882 - 1941

The Quote Investigator http://quoteinvestigator.com/tag/virginia-woolf/ traces the origin of such statements to The Intimate Notebooks of George Jean Nathan (1932), where the diarist states:
We were sitting one morning two Summers ago, Ferenc Molnár, Dr. Rudolf Kommer and I, in the little garden of a coffee-house in the Austrian Tyrol. “Your writing?” we asked him. “How do you regard it?” Languidly he readjusted the inevitable monocle to his eye. “Like a whore,” he blandly ventured. “First, I did it for my own pleasure. Then I did it for the pleasure of my friends. And now — I do it for money.”

„Love, money, sex or power:“

—  Preity Zinta film actress 1975

Love is most important. Least important would be power because if you have money, you automatically have power. Sex is also important because I'm a normal person.

„If instead of doing the real work of love you start doing organized propaganda work for me, it is absurd. I need no propaganda or publicity. I do not want propaganda and publicity, but I do want love and honesty.“

—  Meher Baba Indian mystic 1894 - 1969

Contexto: If instead of doing the real work of love you start doing organized propaganda work for me, it is absurd. I need no propaganda or publicity. I do not want propaganda and publicity, but I do want love and honesty. If you cannot live the life of love and honesty, you should stop working for me. I am quite capable of doing my Universal Work alone.

„It’s hard work and it takes longer than murder or sex.“

—  Carole Morin British writer

Chin Wag At The Slaughterhouse (2013)
Contexto: Murder and sex are both Dionysian.
Creative work is first anarchic; and then it’s structured. It’s right brain then left brain. Anarchic then controlled. To be a really good writer, you have to be able to do both. It’s hard work and it takes longer than murder or sex.
