Random quote of the day:

Random quote of the day:

When we get out of the glass bottles of our own ego,
and when we escape like squirrels from turning in the cages of our personality
and get into the forest again,
we shall shiver with cold and fright
but things will happen to us
so that we don’t know ourselves.

Cool, unlying life will rush in,
and passion will make our bodies taut with power,
we shall stamp our feet with new power
and old things will fall down,
we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like burnt paper.

—D.H. Lawrence, “Escape”

Random quote of the day:

“Set realistic goals for yourself. And by realistic, I don’t mean practical. I mean figure out what feeds your passion, then decide what steps you need to take to get it. But, and I can’t emphasize this enough, don’t be so driven that all you think about is the end result. Not only does that cheat you out of truly living every day, it can set you up to feel like a failure if it doesn’t come fast enough or if it’s different from how you envisioned it. You have to be adaptable and leave some things to…chance.”

—Becky Cochrane, A Coventry Christmas
