“Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.”

~Henry David Thoreau

Weekly Writing Spark~March 19th||

Is there a decision you’ve been thinking about but avoiding because it seemed too daunting?

If you followed through on that decision, what would the worst possible outcome be?  Now, what would the best possible outcome look like? Does the decision still seem daunting?  What steps can you take to help the outcome be a positive one?

Reflect and write!

Quote of the Week~March 16th, 2012

“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that
without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.”

~ Pearl S. Buck
