–––but be gentle when you can't
make your bed every morning
go to the library
read + write every day
make jokes that don't hurt people's feelings
drink lots of water
eat breakfast food for dinner
write thank you cards
do laundry somewhat regularly
people who said things
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
The people must know before they can act, and there is no educator to compare with the press.
Ida B. Wells
We are reading the story of our lives
As though we were in it,
As though we had written it.
A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.
I write a lot, and I'm not afraid to make mistakes or to write badly. I can always fix something weak and dull. But I can't fix a blank page.
Never explain what you do. It speaks for itself. You only muddle it by talking about it.
Fear is an insidious and deadly thing. It can warp judgment, freeze reflexes, breed mistakes. Worse, it's contagious.
The world needs a sense of worth, and it will achieve it only by its people feeling that they are worthwhile.
