"When a thing has been said and well, have no scruple. Take it and copy it." --Anatole France

(Love of the printed word) =)

Hello all! I've got a lot swirling around in this brain and soul of mine, so instead of attempting to articulate it all, I've let others speak for me. The second set of quotations were things that I've stumbled upon somehow that have made me think a lot. AAaaaannnddd, just for fun, I've also added a few pretty cool youtube gems. My love to all!

How I'm Feeling/What I'm Thinking Lately:

“Your wrongs do set a scandal on my sex:
We cannot fight for love, as men may do;
We should be wooed and were not made to woo.”
- Helena, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act II, Scene I)

“Wherefore, brethren, seek not to counsel the Lord, but to take counsel from his hand. For behold, ye yourselves know that he counseleth in wisdom, and in justice, and in great mercy, over all his works.”
- The Book of Mormon, Jacob 4:10

“So baby hold on to me
Whatever will be, will be
the future is our to see
When you hold on to me”
- Eddie Money

Things That I'm Pondering and Questioning Lately:

“The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”
- Elizabeth Cady Stanton

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open…No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”
- Martha Graham

"It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness."
- Leo Tolstoy

What I've Been Watching Lately:

Saw this on a special I watched on Netflix Instant Viewing (greatest thing EVER), and thought it was absolutely fantastic.

Oh, British humor.

"What tempo, Captain?" "Tempo, tempo, tempo? A TANGO!!!"

This one is longer, but if you have the time, it's pretty darn incredible. My friend watched this in her Education Psychology class and shared it with me. A neuroscientist describes the experience of having a stroke while knowing what was going on, and the unique opportunity of studying it from the inside out.
