Quote/Inspiration:

“The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The work of life is to develop it. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.” — David S. Viscott (radio personality)

“It is one of the superficialities of our time to see in science and in art two opposites. Imagination is the mother of both.”
–Theodor Billroth

“There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilisations–these are mortal, and their life is to ours the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit–immortal horrors or everlasting splendours. This does not mean that we are to be perpetually solemn. We must play. But our merriment must be of that kind (and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) which exists between people who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously–no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption. And our charity must be a real and costly love…”

–C.S. Lewis in his essay, “The Weight of Glory”
