To make life a little better for people less fortunate than you, that's what I think a meaningful life is.
~ Ruth Bader Ginsburg
At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.~ Eric Hoffer
A poem and photo by Molly Hogan:
If you forever seek perfect,
you may instead discover a recipe
for dissatisfaction--a price
too high to remit.
But within imperfect is a permit
to take risks, to light a fire
of creativity, to be bold and fierce.
When you embrace imperfect,
you set yourself free.
