While his brain burrowed through rock toward a very specific knowledge goal, mine preferred to warren the air; his brain operated a drill bit while mine launched a thousand aimless kites that tangled strings or bounced along the invisible currents, disconnected and alone.

He suffered due to his specialized excesses; he just suffered differently from me."

Lawrence, who was in many ways influenced by Charlotte Brontë."

In the former everything is fiction, while the second is the sum of the real plus the sensibility of the photographer.

Author: Isabel Allende

They can be even-tempered, even during sh@tstorms of winter weather that render their climate unfit for life.

They hate margarine."

When something is lost, redirect energy, follow the derivé, the chance and flow of what life tosses us, and make something new instead. Remember that I'm often struck by certain passages of descriptive writing, writing that is not about driving home a point but about providing detail, background, setting the scene (it's tempting to call this the stadium of writing). It has a "something from nothing" quality: a pleasurable experience has been had, and no one has paid a price. Remember that writing does not have to be torture (107)."
Author: Moyra Davey

They are willing to lift all the dirt in order to find the jewels. In daily life, people forget this principle and become pessimists because there is more dirt than diamonds. When trouble comes, don't be frightened by the negatives. Look for the positives and dig them out. They are so valuable it doesn't matter if you have to handle tons of dirt."
Author: Robert Ringer
