Anxiety is the hand maiden of creativity.
T. S. Eliot
When in disgrace with fortune and men\'s eyes
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself, and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featur\'d like him, like him with friends possess\'d,
Desiring this man\'s art, and that man\'s scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts my self almost despising,
Haply I think on thee,-- and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven\'s gate,;
For thy sweet love remember\'d such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing. --Albert
Henry David Thoreau
Men talk about Bible miracles because there is no miracle in their lives.
Cease to gnaw that crust. There is ripe fruit over your head.
