Individuality: Carl Jung

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Here’s another quick but thoughtful quote. It’s infinitely appropriate to a blog which asserts creativity and artfulness in all of life.

The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.
— Carl (Gustav) Jung (1875-1961)

Have a lovely Summer weekend!

You Learn by Living: Eleanor Roosevelt

Friday, July 1st, 2011

I’m working on a wonderful deadline and can’t write much here. However, I was gifted with an amazing book full of quotations last week. I will share a quote here from an amazing, strong woman.

One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
— Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)

If you like to read autobiographies, I loved Ms. Roosevelt’s “You Learn by Living” (Link to Oprah BookFinder). You might want to check it out.
