Re: Inspiration Quote Angie Yesterday at 01:36 PM
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.

Suzy Kassem

Suzy Kassem is an American writer of Egyptian parentage whose insightful work often reflects themes of self-discovery and empowerment. In this quote, she underlines the destructive power of self-doubt and points out that the fear of failing can be more paralyzing than any actual setback. Often, it is our own hesitation that stifles our potential; it’s so easy to talk ourselves out of something scary or new with an unknown outcome. Kassem reminds us that although failure is difficult, it can also impart important lessons and growth — certainly more than we get out of never trying at all.

French astronomer Odette Bancilhon was born on 22 September 1908. She had a science degree and served as a meteorological assistant in Algiers for a year beginning in 1932. She was later appointed to replace Alfred Schmitt while he did his military service. During this time she discovered 1333 Cevenola, a main belt asteroid.

In 1937 she was appointed as an assistant in the observatory. She married Alfred Schmitt in 1942, and in 1950 they were transferred to the Strasbourg Observatory in France. In 1956 they went to the Quito Observatory in Ecuador, Odette working there as an assistant and Alfred as observatory director. Odette retired in 1964.

Odette has a distinction given to few people, a main-belt asteroid named in her honor. In 1951 a former colleague at the Algiers Observatory, Louis Boyer, named his discovery 1713 Bancilhon in her honor.

The end of summer nears as a breath of autumn meanders by whispering to trees it is time to reveal hidden brilliant gold and red hues, for gardens to hurry the last of their bounty and nudging our thoughts to cooler days ahead. Time for flannel and warmer clothing to make an appearance. Time to sew!
