Quote for Today: Alice Walker

You think you can avoid [pain,] but you actually can't. If you do, you just get sicker, or you feel more pain. But if you can speak it, if you can write it, if you can paint it, it is very healing. --Alice Walker Image: Sorrowing Old Man, Vincent van Gogh, 1890

Quote for Today: Robert Frost

  A poem begins with a lump in the throat; a homesickness or a love sickness. It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. ― Robert Frost Public Domain Image via Pixabay
