“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”
--Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi

Rumi was a 13th century Persian poet. Shows that some things remain valid over the centuries. And probably as hard to keep to. I know that I have trouble with it.

Mona, I LOVE Rumi. It's always interesting that everytime I read anything by him, it was just what I needed right at that moment smile

I have never read that quote before, Mona. I really like it. In a way, it reminds me of the saying you get more with sugar than salt. I plan to look up Rumi.

I love sharing quotes!

I believe with all my heart that every individual is creative. Cooking, writing, painting, organizing, anything - we all have our ways of doing things that are original to us!

Here is a quote about writing I found.

  “When we’re not writing, we’re thinking about writing.  And we’re writing a lot, in scraps of stolen time other people don’t notice they have.” -Richard Peck

Yes, Rumi is wonderful.

In the same horticultural vein . . .

“Talent renders the whole idea of rehearsal meaningless; when you find something at which you are talented, you do it (whatever it is) until your fingers bleed or your eyes are ready to fall out of your head.  Even when no one is listening (or reading, or watching), every outing is a bravura performance, because you as the creator are happy.” -Stephen King

Wow Chel, that's pretty powerful!! I'm seeing it as when you have a gift, you don't don't consider "rehearsing" because it's actually part of you - or, it's WHO you are.

I agree, my creativity does define who I am.
It's the way I communicate.

And, I love Stephen King.
All except that Mist ending thing.
