Two Quote Tuesday

 

“A man, to be greatly good, must imagine intensely and comprehensively; he must put himself in the place of another and of many others; the pains and pleasures of his species must become his own.”

- PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY

“I think we are living in selfish times. I’m the first one to say that I’m the most selfish. We live in the so-called ‘first world,’ and we may be first in a lot of things like technology, but we are behind in empathy.”

Photo Essay: Love of the Game 3

8PM. Time to go to work.

I’ll make a few mistakes tonight. I always do. “The master weaver incorporated the mistakes of his students into a larger pattern.”

 

A pair of Master Weavers. I get to work with awesome people.

Time to head home. At least I got to wear sneakers tonight.

Late night cut-ups & hiccups. Nonstop hustle. All for the love of the game.

Some Wisdom…

There is a secret pride in every human heart that revolts at tyranny. You may order and drive an individual, but you cannot make him respect you.

A Little Invitation to the Universe 2.

What began as December’s collage project has perhaps ended up as the new Cathcart-Olson family crest. Just wishing out loud.

The Art of Listening.

I want to write about the great and powerful thing that listening is. And how we forget it. And how we don’t listen to our children, or those we love. And least of all – which is so important, too – to those we do not love. But we should. Because listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force.

Brenda Ueland, from The Art of Listening.

Please take a moment to read this short and compelling essay. It’s great! A big thanks to Melissa Cathcart for turning me on to it. Enjoy!

Two Quote Tuesday!

   

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.”

- Goethe

“If we treat each other as if we are geniuses, poets, and artists, we have a better chance of becoming that on-stage.”

- Del Close

Some Wisdom…

The temptation to moralize is strong; it is emotionally satisfying to have enemies rather than problems, to seek out culprits rather than the flaws in the system.

 

William Sloan Coffin, Jr.

Two Quote Tuesday!

 

“All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one… characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers.”

- Henry David Thoreau

“Because you can’t, you won’t and you don’t stop…”

- Beastie Boys
