Knowing

You already know
What you need to be doing
And it isn’t this

A haiku about self-care

Making time

It’s never too late to be who you might have been.

George Elliot

Paths

It is up to us whether we subordinate ourselves to god, nature, or other persons.

A saying I made up, then printed out and taped over my desk, in high school

Memory

“You shall forget these things, toiling in the household,
You shall remember them, droning by the fire,
When age and forgetfulness sweeten memory
Only like a dream that has often been told
And often been changed in the telling.  They will seem unreal.
Human kind cannot bear very much reality.”

-T. S. Eliot

Endurance

Somewhere in the frozen wasteland

“For scientific discovery give me Scott; for speed and efficiency of travel give me Amundsen; but when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.”

 Sir Raymond Priestly, Antarctic Explorer and Geologist.
