A Life in Just One Day

Capture I like this quote. For me, I wonder what I could do to make each day complete. If each day is a life, what would you want each life to be like? Could you be a different person each day, try out a few options and see which really does suit you? If you were planning to make each day a life, how would that work for you?

How does this quote inspire you? Or, does it make you angry? Does it assume too much, put too much pressure on just one day? Write about it.

The Rhythm of Language

Style is a very simple matter: it is all rhythm. Once you get that, you can’t use the wrong words. But on the other hand here am I sitting after half the morning, crammed with ideas, and visions, and so on, and can’t dislodge them, for lack of the right rhythm. Now this is very profound, what rhythm is, and goes far deeper than words. A sight, an emotion, creates this wave in the mind, long before it makes words to fit it; and in writing (such is my present belief) one has to recapture this, and set this working (which has nothing apparently to do with words) and then, as it breaks and tumbles in the mind, it makes words to fit it.

Entertaining a Thought Without Accepting It

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” – Aristotle11295763_10202916416110209_1323735583572627275_nSource:  Ancientology

This is a wonderful quote. I may have read it before but not really thought about it. Today it is sticking with me. I do think it is amazing how the mind works. Especially being able to think, to compare and to reason. Not everyone still does all that as an adult. Just as this quote says, it takes something extra to hear, consider and understand an idea when you don’t agree or accept it.
