Thoughtful Thursday: Clarity

“You must read, you must persevere, you must sit up nights, you must inquire, and exert the utmost power of your mind. If one way does not lead to the desired meaning, take another; if obstacles arise, then still another; until, if your strength holds out, you will find that clear which at first looked dark.”
Giovanni Boccaccio

Friday Inspiration: No Holding Back

No time to live in fear

Cannot waste precious time

Time to give it all you got

Before time gives up on you

And runs out

Thoughtful Thursday: Character

“Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy–all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Thoughtful Thursday: Rationality

“Emotion and instinct were the basis of all our decisions, our actions, everything we valued, the way we saw the world. Reason and rationality were a thin coat of paint on a ragged surface.”
Karen Joy Fowler, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
