1. "In the bullring, the terrified bull always returns to same spot as if it is a place of safety. It is called the querencia. In writing, I had found my querencia. My place, my passion."
Author: Chloe Thurlow
2. " ahonda en la anomalía, en lo repugnante y mezquino como si nuestra norma fuese la del respeto y la generosidad y la rectitud y hubiese que analizar microscópicamente cuanto se sale de ella: como si la mala fe y la tradición, la malquerencia y la voluntad de daño no formaran parte de esa norma y fueran cosas excepcionales, y merecieran por ello todos nuestros desvelos y nuestra máxima atención. Y no es así."
Author: Javier Marías
3. "In bullfighting there is an interesting parallel to the pause as a place of refuge and renewal. It is believed that in the midst of a fight, a bull can find his own particular area of safety in the arena. There he can reclaim his strength and power. This place and inner state are called his querencia. As long as the bull remains enraged and reactive, the matador is in charge. Yet when he finds his querencia, he gathers his strength and loses his fear. From the matador's perspective, at this point the bull is truly dangerous, for he has tapped into his power."

Today's Quote

What is needed, however, isn't just that people working together be nice to each other. It is discipline.Discipline is hard--harder than trustworthiness and skill and perhaps even than selflessness. We are by nature flawed and inconstant creatures. We can't even keep from snacking between meals. We are not built for discipline. We are built for novelty and excitement, not for careful attention to detail. Discipline is something we have to work at."
