The Original in Us

The Original in Us

Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous – to poetry.

― Thomas Mann

A world of learning

The world is a university and everyone in it is a teacher.

Make sure when you wake up in the morning, you go to school.

―T. D. Jakes

That moment of clarity when you’re finally honest with yourself and you admit you don’t know everything! Recognizing that you can’t know everything and that you will never know everything should push you to keep learning something.
