Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

Well married a person has wings, poorly married shackles.
– Henry Ward Beecher
I came across this quote while digging for another. It rings so true for my life — I’m well-married, and it’s like having wings.
I always try to evaluate the source of a quote prior to posting. Here’s the Wikipedia page for this guy. It makes the quote sad.
I love reading. I love the adventure of going to a different world, sometimes literally, sometimes not. I love seeing how different characters react to different situations. I love interacting with someone else’s ideas about how the world works.
If you haven’t yet, start reading your first book of 2014. It’ll totally be worth it.
Another quote from Eric Peters’ latest album, this time the New Year:
This is the year when laughter douses charred and burnt-out dreams
This is the year when wrens return to nest in storm-blown trees
Is this the year of relocation from boughs of old despair?
This is the year to perch on hope’s repair
Oh, oh, oh it’s a new year.
Oh, oh, oh it’s a brand new light.
Oh, oh, oh can you believe it?
It’s the skies that we dream of.
This is an Eric Peters song from his last release, Birds of Relocation. I love this song and this album.
There’s so much to be thankful for
And so much to be forgotten
There’s no perfect secret
To the things that bring us joy
Ha ha! to the old year
Goodbye to the cold fear
Gonna cry when I need it, smile when I need it
