Thought for today

As a lover of words, I look forward to my daily email from Wordsmith.  Not only do I get to discover - sometimes rediscover - words, the email also includes a provocative thought for the day.  

I'm sharing today's with you because it reflects what I'm discovering through my writing here.

"A writer -- and, I believe, generally all persons -- must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art."

 -Jorge Luis Borges, writer (1899-1986)
