When ideas fail to translate into words, borrow, borrow, borrow…..
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock. ~Thomas Jefferson
Excerpted from Us Against You by Fredrik Backman:
When terrible things happen, most people become waves, but some people become rocks. Waves are tossed back and forth when the wind comes, but the rocks just take a beating, immovable, waiting for the storm to blow over.
And David Whyte, from Crossing the Unknown Sea: Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity:
One of the distinguishing features of any courageous human being is the ability to remain unutterably themselves in the midst of conforming pressures.
