Just a citation for today, taken directly from A.Word.A.Day - a wonderful tool for writing. But, over the years, I came to love their daily citations even better.

I am traveling again – Rome, Italy – and I am taking a holiday from electronic overload. We all should, from time to time, turn off TV and email, Facebook and Twitter.

“In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” - Albert Schweitzer, philosopher, physician, musician, Nobel laureate (1875-1965).

Instead of a long blog, I want to share this beautiful life metaphor - which I found on A.Word.A.Day. I like its water images:

An individual human existence should be like a river: small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past rocks and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being.

- Bertrand Russell, philosopher, mathematician, author, Nobel laureate (1872-1970)
