Tuesday Tidbits #84


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!


Perfection is an unobtainable goal. Excellence is not.

When you face the final moments of your life, it is not the things you have that will bring you comfort, it is what you have given that buoys the spirit.

Making decisions is meant to be hard. They inherently hold a perceived moment of risk, a roll of the dice, if you will. You will never be able to predict exactly the number that may come up. The best you can do is make sure the dice aren’t loaded and then give them a toss.

I believe in the power of language, but it is music that is the true universal communicator. If I wrote four bars of music onto a scale, it would be played the same no matter the country or the culture. And you thought Google translator is cool.

Words are a photograph of life. Captured in the cursive and the linear. Colored as deeply as any masterpiece and painted with linguistic flair, they become spoken art dyed onto a canvass of black and white.

If there were a species of bird that tweeted as much as humans do, we would have hunted it to extinction by now. Too much of anything simply becomes noise.

Good writing can bring the silent fall of a leaf in the woods or the buzz and hum of a vibrant city street. From the lullaby of a fading coda to the blaring horns of a trumpeted introduction. It is the master of volume, note, and tone. An entire symphony to be read.


Now get out there and write something!
