Random quote of the day:

“We yearn so hard and long to be rid of darkness. Yet without dark, there is no shadow. And without shadow, there is no depth perception. Without any depth perception, we have no sense of direction, no sense of what is near or far. In our need to find our way, we are asked not to bypass darkness but to work with it and through it.”

—Mark Nepo, “A Conversation With the Elements: Wisdom and Practical Guidance On Opening To the World,” Parabola, Winter 2012/2013

Random quote of the day:

“A writer must never speak of his doubts regarding his creation. It would be too easy to answer him: “Who is forcing you to create? If it is such constant anguish, why do you endure it?” Doubts are the most intimate thing about us. Never speak of one’s doubts, whatever they may be.”

—Albert Camus, Notebooks 1942-1951, tr. Justin O’Brien

Random quote of the day:

“Here are the two best prayers I know: ‘Help me, help me, help me’ and ‘thank you, thank you, thank you.’ A woman I know says, for her morning prayer, ‘Whatever,’ and then for the evening, ‘Oh, well,’ but has conceded that these prayers are more palatable for people without children.”
