One thing that I have come to realize is that to keep on going towards my goals is that I need constant encouragement, be it from others or myself, and fresh inspiration to be motivated. Motivation is a thing that when it comes it doesn’t stay for too long unless you entertain it and make it feel welcome. So it’s like a guest, a very important one.

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.”
― Sylvia Plath
This is one of the few quotes that I have come across that speaks directly to me because this is exactly how I feel. It’s nice and at the same time strange (in a good way) how no matter the distance, someone on the other side of the globe can be having the same thoughts as you.

Jean de La Fontaine
The French poet and author of Fables was born on this day in 1621.
