"Work. Finish. Publish." – Michael Faraday's advice to a young scientist.

I need that engraved on something, though it's not exactly what I call uplifting.

"Turn fear into excitement."

When I was straightening up the other day I found a scrap of paper that I had scrawled the above phrase onto. I know I didn't come up with it myself, but it did strike a chord with me, and I hope everyone who is blazing a new trail in life will get something from it, too.

Do you like to snark bad poetry? Then I suggest you check out Love: Poems by Danielle Steele. Search inside the book, hit the "Surprise me" button for pure hilarity. Too many good ones to list, though I am fond of:


"Razzle dazzle snow scene
my life so white so bare so vast
and then your open door
my heart whooshing toward your arms..."


or -

"Jam.
There must be jam,
you told me
firmly
with a half-hidden smile
of satisfaction
and a promise
I was yet
to understand..."

or maybe "The Year of the Bears". Yeah, that's a good one too. I think I will have to get my own copy of this, I wonder if the campus library has a one? Maybe I can write my thesis on this.

"How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said." - Victor Hugo
