Tuesday Tidbits #65


Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!

Wine is to the poet what rain is to fertile soil. Just the right coaxing for life to begin to flourish.

A muse is usually a singular voice, often unheard in the symphony of thought. Sometimes a quiet mind is needed to allow a soloist to appear.

There are a little over seven thousand languages spoken in the world today, more than five thousand ethnic groups, more than four thousand different religions, one hundred and ninety-five separate countries, with 24 time zones, and two hemispheres. Man, when the aliens show up, they are going to be so confused.

I have had many a fine meal worthy of an ode to gastronomy, but never the energy to write one afterwards.

There is no “perfect” in poetry. In fact, the best poetry is in the imperfect. It more clearly represents the world we live in and understand. “Perfection” can seem a bit unnatural and I am not sure how you would ever know that you achieved it.

Just so we are clear, you are not offering some “free” advice, when it comes with your expectations that I follow it.

The world holds a billion faces we will never see, but there is not one single life we cannot touch.


Now get out there and write something!

    I love the ‘billion faces’ one the most – so good to remember and act upon

  2. Too many great tidbits this week to single just one out! “Free” advice, followed by expectations, is something I need to contemplate deeper.

    The “free advice” always comes with strings attached. Good one, Brad!
