friday's inspiration

The trouble is that not enough people have come together with the firm determination to live the things which they say they believe.

--Eleanor Roosevelt, first lady (1933-1945) and reform leader

The function of freedon is to free somebody else.

-- Toni Morrison, Pultizer Prize- and Nobel Prize-winning writer

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.

--Sylvia Plath, poet and novelist

The little cares which fretted me
I lost them yesterday,
Among the fields, above the sea,
Among the winds at play,
Among the lowing of the herds,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.

-- Elizabeth Barrett Browning, nineteenth-century poet

Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.

-- Elizabeth Bibesco, writer and poet
