Sprocket, the above is not a quote. It's a link.   ???

It's a long quote. The video is 25 minutes long.
Never make a decision standing up.

"Most people, and particularly kids, don't realize that they are in control of their lives and they're the ones that are going to make the decisions and they're the ones that are going to actually make it one way or the other.

Usually adolescence is a time when kids feel that the world is doing it to them, whether it's their parents doing it to them or their teachers doing it to them or their friends doing it to them, and that they are the victim of all this.

Somewhere in here, you have to learn that you're not the victim, but instead you're the one that's doing it. That moment is sometimes a long slow realization or sometimes turning on a light switch. All of a sudden you realize that you are the person who controls your life."
- Jim Henson

Good writers have two things in common: they prefer to be understood rather than admired; and they do not write for knowing and over-acute readers.

Can I join? There are a few quotes out there that make me stop and wonder.

''I embrace emerging experience.
I participate in discovery, I am a butterfly.
I am not the butterfly collector.
I want the experience of a butterfly.''

I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering.

"The world is like a dropped pie most of the time. Don't kill yourself trying to put it back together. Just grab a fork and eat some of it off the floor. Then carry on." Elizabeth Gilbert.
It's good to laugh at yourself once in a while - why let everyone else have all the fun!

Someday I will understand Auschwitz. This was a brave statement but innocently absurd. No one will ever understand Auschwitz. What I might have set down with more accuracy would have been: Someday I will write about Sophie's life and death, and thereby help demonstrate how absolute evil is never extinguished from the world. Auschwitz itself remains inexplicable. The most profound statement yet made about Auschwitz was not a statement at all, but a response.

The query: "At Auschwitz, tell me, where was God?"

And the answer: "Where was man?

― William Styron, Sophie's Choice
