1. "Complaining is an advertisement for stupid." Madonna's grandmother. The psychotherapist in me first dismissed this idea, but I can see where she's coming from. Interesting.

2. "All the buried seeds crack open in the dark, the instant they surrender to a process they can’t see. And this innate surrender allows everything edible and fragrant to break ground into a life we call spring. In nature, we are quietly given countless models of how to give ourselves over to what appears dark and hopeless, but which is ultimately an awakening beyond all imagining." - Mark Nepo. Yes. And wow.

3. "I make nothing. The show, we put it on the air that night and it's gone." -Jimmy Kimmel on being a late night host. I found this fascinating. I'm going to be thinking about this a lot. The idea of creating something that is not tangible or has a shelf life. When in reality it all has a shelf life. This kind of blew my mind. More to come on this.
