It is of us…

Posted: December 22, 2010 in Uncategorized

For it would seem – her case proved it – that we write, not with the fingers, but with the whole person. The nerve which controls the pen winds itself about every fiber of our being, threads the heart, pierces the liver.

~ Virginia Woolf

Writing quotes have often resonated with me and only recently have I realized that it’s not, in fact, because I’m somehow meant to be a writer (which I am definitely not meant to be). Instead, I think they resonate because teaching, like writing, is so much of who we are that it is part of our innate being… and what we put out into the world uncovers the soul, much like the masterpieces so many authors write.

Be your masterpiece.

No need to hurry. No need to sparkle.
No need to be anybody but oneself.

~ Virginia Woolf,
