The Wild Things…


Obstacles are like wild animals.

They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can.

If they see you are afraid of them…

they are liable to spring upon you;

but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.

~ Orison Swett Marden

You Are Half Water…

Water does not resist.

Water flows.

When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress.

Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you.

But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it.

Water is patient.

Dripping water wears away a stone.

Remember that, my child.

Remember you are half water.

If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it.

Water does.

~ Margaret Atwood
