Quote of the day

28 06 2009

Bertrand Russell once said,  “To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.” As I grow older, I find the truth of that statement more and more obvious. But first, I believe, we need to know what our fear is. To some, just knowing what it is is already the first step to conquering it.


On a side note, and to continue this current moment of procrastination as I’m sitting at my desk having started to nut out an introduction I’m actually happy with: If you blog on WordPress, you know that there’s a bit to the side that lets you include tags to your blog posts. I have always used tags, although I don’t know why, but the size of the tag increases according to how many times it’s been mentioned on your blog.

I’m not liking the fact that “work” is the biggest one, and God is the second.

Click here for the link to a blog I spent today working on for next year’s Advanced Composition students’ first assignment. When I really should have been writing my dissertation. I honestly do everything I can to avoid the compulsory. It’s pathetic! Maybe tomorrow will be more productive.

I always find inspiration in Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” though.
