“With a beaming face celebrate the joyful day and rest not therein. For no one can take away his goods with him. Yea, no one returns again, who has gone hence.”

Whitney Johnson
“Be in beta. Do things badly. Abandon perfectionism. Following this advice can seem nearly impossible when pitted against our identity. But when we allow ourselves to go into the rapid iteration of trial and error, like a child learning to walk, the feel-good neurological response just may charm away the snake of a strangling ego.”

“Look for the failures in your successes and the successes in your failures.”
Bob Sutton

“We have nothing that is really our own; we hold everything as a loan.”
Nicolas Poussin

Susanna Clarke
“Houses, like people, are apt to become rather eccentric if left too much on their own;”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
