Hmm,...I thought that this was written on his kidney stone.

Seriously,:

"You can never fully appreciate the height of the mountain until you have experienced the depth of the valley."

"There are no roses without thorns."

Keith Johnston on creativity (paraphrased by Turk): "Rather than view children as immature adults, perhaps it would be more productive to view adults as atrophied children." (This thought hit me in the gut when I first read it and it has stayed with me ever since.)

The above quote is from his book "Impro: Improvisation and the Theatre" in the section where he discusses creativity and spontaneity and how children seem to be born uninhibited and to be born with both creativity and spontaneity, and, that children, as they are taught and conditioned in school, they begin to learn how to cope in society, and, as a consequence with learning how to cope (and conform), they begin to lose both their creativity and spontaneity qualities as they get older and begin to approach adulthood.) (See: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0878301......78301178 )

Keith's companion book, "Impro for Storytellers" appears to be a free (and legal?) download at: http://www.filestube.com/fkCluWcv5yTtrdx......p-W.html The Table of Contents appears very interesting and food for thought.

Just, IMHO; your mileage may vary...and probably does.

Voyager, there are no bridges. One builds them as one goes.

Is that all there is? No! There must be something more. What else is there? What am I missing?
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

It doesn't matter if they knock you down, so long as you get back up.

"You're a lifetime of experiences, happiness and heartbreaks.... You've been through all the good and the bad to arrive at this very moment right now... And from this moment on, take all you know and live life to the fullest... Go for your dreams right now by doing the best you can with what you have... You already have what you think you need to succeed, deep within you... Now, go on... You can do it." -Me-

My favorite inspiration is still Kipling's "If"...


"If" by Rudyard Kipling.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Smile

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
