If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Thoughts on Thinking

Doubt is not a pleasant state of mind, but certainty is absurd.  Voltaire, 1767

At a certain age some people’s minds close up; they live on their intellectual fat.  ~William Lyon Phelps

It is well for people who think, to change their minds occasionally in order to keep them clean.  ~Luther Burbank

How wonderful that we have met with a paradox.  Now we have some hope of making progress.  ~Niels Bohr

We use 10% of our brains.  Imagine how much we could accomplish if we used the other 60%.  ~Ellen Degeneres

So I’m driving home from class last night when I have a passing thought.

Your “book” needs a sense of humor.

Argh. There’s something wrong with my “book.” I knew I shouldn’t do it.

There’s nothing “wrong” with it, silly girl. This is just another idea.


Just think about it.

OK. Actually that’s a pretty cool idea.

Thanks. I’ll keep ’em coming:)
