2. "Sois-en sûre, Caesonia. Sans elle, j'eusse été un homme satisfait. Grâce à elle, j'ai conquis la divine clairvoyance du solitaire. (Il s'exalte de plus en plus, étranglant peu à peu Caesonia qui se laisse aller sans résistance, les mains un peu offertes en avant. Il lui parle, penché sur son oreille.) Je vis, je tue, j'exerce le pouvoir délirant du destructeur, auprès de quoi celui du créateur paraît une singerie. C'est cela, être heureux. C'est cela le bonheur, cette insupportable déli-vrance, cet universel mépris, le sang, la haine autour de moi, cet isolement non pareil de l'homme qui tient toute sa vie sous son regard, la joie démesurée de l'assassin impuni, cet-te logique implacable qui broie des vies humaines (il rit), qui te broie, Caesonia, pour parfaire enfin la solitude éternelle que je désire."
Author: Albert Camus

19. "Modern civilization depends on science … James Smithson was well aware that knowledge should not be viewed as existing in isolated parts, but as a whole, each portion of which throws light on all the other, and that the tendency of all is to improve the human mind, and give it new sources of power and enjoyment … narrow minds think nothing of importance but their own favorite pursuit, but liberal views exclude no branch of science or literature, for they all contribute to sweeten, to adorn, and to embellish life … science is the pursuit above all which impresses us with the capacity of man for intellectual and moral progress and awakens the human intellect to aspiration for a higher condition of humanity.[Joseph Henry was the first Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, named after its benefactor, James Smithson.]"

22. "{McCabe on the influential scientist Luther Burbank}His magnificent work, which added an incalculable sum to the wealth of America and left him a comparatively poor man, is well known. His own simple account of his discoveries runs to 12 volumes and is incomplete. I was one of the few men whom he admitted to his house in Santa Rosa in the few months before he died and I found him advanced even beyond the vague Emersonian theism of his earlier years. He agreed to see me, he said, though he was tired and ill, because of his admiration of my work as a rationalist. He had just raised a storm by a public declaration that he did not believe in a future life, and his biographer Wilbur Hale repeats this."
Author: Luther Burbank
23. "Sonia's terribly fond of juggling with people's lives. I never shall forget when she made me go to her doctor...I can only say he very nearly killed me. It's not her fault if I'm here today. She's entirely unscrupulous. She gets a hold over people much too easily, with her charm and her prestige, and then forces her own values on them."
Author: Nancy Mitford

That person will be more confident in approaching others, as Sonia was insharing her business at the women's event. They're going to be much more willing to put themselves out in the world, to be vulnerable in relationships, and to be willing to risk and dare, because they're operating from a place of safety.

Today's Quote

Fear is crippling. Fear of the future can convince us that there is no way out and nothing is ever going to get better. Fear is blinding; it can make us miss the warning signs flashing right in front of our eyes. It can also make you miss those brilliant flashes of color, when the world isn't so gray. But, if you think about it, being afraid isn't such a bad thing. Because fear is a reminder that you still have something to lose. Something worth holding onto."
