About two years ago, I read Quiet: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain, and I wrote down some quotes and took some notes on the book.

"Little [another author] believes that fixed traits and free traits coexist... we can and do act out of character in the service of "core personal projects." In other words, introverts are capable of acting like extroverts for the sake of work they consider important, people they love, or anything they value highly."

Psychological tricks to feeling calm in stressful situations:
  • Pay attention to my body when I am feeling genuinely confident --> adopt those positions when it's time to fake it.
  • Smile.

Questions to help identify my own personal projects:
  • Think of what you loved to do as a child. How did you answer questions of what you wanted to be when you grew up? Pay attention to the underlying impulse: What did that profession mean to you?
  • Pay attention to the work you gravitate to.
  • Pay attention to what you enjoy. Jealousy tells the truth.
  • Mood: Content
  • Drinking: Coffee and milk

I have always enjoyed collecting quotes, so here are some of those:

"When I was a a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years." -Mark Twain

"In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing." -Ninon de L'Enclos

"Memory is what tells a man that his wife's birthday was yesterday." -Mario Rocco

"There is on such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person." -C.K. Chesterton

"The man in the cabbage field has seen nothing at all; but he is thinking of the things that unite men—hunger and babies, and the beauty of women, and the promise or menace of the sky." -C.K. Chesterton

On Love:
"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth."

On a slightly different note, here's a little lesson:
The difference between loneliness and solitude is purpose and contentment. 
  • Mood: Content
I found this quote among some papers and notebooks I have been organizing these past few days. I guess this is from Fall 2008, and this was from a talk I attended concerning relationships. 

Our lives are filled with seasons. Do I believe that this season will last forever?
In this season, some amazing things can happen, not the least of which is leaning far heavier into the reality of Jesus Christ. Let this season be spent with Him.
There is a way of honoring the seasons you experience. 
  • Mood: Content
"But every night come out these preachers of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile." -Emerson

"Raindrops" - by J. and N. Segal
I get to thinking when it's been raining
"Why the raindrops?"
Guess I'm not thinking like a flower's thinking
Guess I'm not feeling what a tree is feeling, 
In the raindrops

"One day she would write a book about the love and patience that bind one person to another after all the glinty romantic stuff has worn off." -Anne Lamott in Rosie

"Dimentica" - Raf
dimentica tu fallo per me
che anchora non so
dimenticare te
dimentica perche io ancora
non so dimenticare
dimenticare
  • Mood: Tired

I haven't had much time today at ALL- I've been playing cards with friends all day, and was up all night last night playing cards, and I'm fall-asleep-sitting-up-tired, but I want to say:

No matter what ambitions, hopes, dreams, or disappointments or heartbreaks today has been for you, I hope that you've grasped it and made it the most possible within your power. I hope that you've been able to seize this Valentine's Day by the reigns to make it a wonderful day for yourself. :)
