Thomas Jefferson’s pocket notebooks, composed of erasable ivory plates on which he would write scientific observations and memoranda before copying them into notebooks in the evening. Jefferson made use of a practice that was a thousand years old: replace the ivory with parchment scraps (leftovers) and you end up with the medieval version of this handy "fan" notebook.

Flannery O'Connor: "I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say."
Quotes, Truth, Book, Writing, Thought, So True, Writers
"I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say." Also why I like quotes. Because I'd have never thought to put it this way, but this is perfection on a stick.
"I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say." - Flannery O'Connor (This is so true for me. Writing helps me sort & organize my thoughts so I understand them better.)
Writing things down crystallises our thoughts and makes them clear for others to understand. In so doing, we make our own ideas clearer to ourselves - the we can begin to spot the limitations and implications. - So true!!
There are times when this is so true for me. Writing helps me sort & organize my thoughts so even I understand them better.

Howard Gossage said: “When baiting a mousetrap with cheese, be sure to leave room for the mouse.” In other words, make sure you allow for your reader's thought and participation - don’t spoil the experience by explaining too much. This battery campaign does it brilliantly: we see kids getting into disastrous mischief, and with the warning NEVER LET THEIR TOYS DIE. The moment when the toys stopped working, driving kids to make their own fun, is left completely to our imagination...

Good advice from C.S. Lewis -- and it's just as true for your journaling - write a few vivid sensory details, and it will bring the moment back much more than one of those vagely categorical words.

"Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots." Rumi [one power of Journaling is that you can start at the tip of any branch, or the tips of several branches, and find your way to the roots. And you can turn the other way and see the patterns of the branching. And you can feel the underground streams where your roots draw nourishment.]
Inspiration, Life, Truth, Roots, Wisdom, Thought, Rumi Quotes
#encouragingwords http://www.positivewordsthatstartwith.com/ go to the roots...love it when we share truths...ANY truths, what we say reveals so much of the one speaking not the one being spoken about.....revealing your own inner truth with what you say #qoutes #inspirationalquotes #positivity #positivewords #inspirational
May 18, Sunday: Go back to the roots (root chakra) today. Notice what you have been searching for is here. Live from here today. Celebrate what is here without going into future. Honor from here what is here and what is now. (chakra pedia)
Rumi does it again.... really (really!) read this simple, elegant, yet profound statement....and be rooted in Truth.
I love when I can not fully understand something, I love it because it sparks an interest and I do what I can to learn, learn, learn, until I can fully understand. Then there are those things that, no matter how much you learn, or how much knowledge you are able to acquire, Life and only life, can teach you what they mean.
"Maybe you are searching among the branches for what only appears in roots." - Rumi #quotes #rumi
i like this thought, so often have we said "if only we could get to the root of it"

As feminists, men and women alike, we all have stories that are important in raising awareness and helping others seek help for themselves.
Inspiration, Life, Quotes, Truth, Inspire Others, Don T, Ashamed
I really like the quote in this pin. I believe it fits this story and topic really well. Close to the end of the story when Ari was starting to realize that his attraction to other boys, especially Dante was true, he didn't want to face the truth. He was too ashamed and felt that it was the wrong thing. It wasn't the norm. I believe Ari and Dante's story will inspire others.
Don't be ashamed of your story, it will INSPIRE others! Words to live by #Quote #pink

SnapWidget | "Don't be ashamed of your story....it will inspire others." When I first started out on this healing journey as a young girl, I was embarrased at all the medical issues that were sprouting up in my body. The Western medicine doctors didn't believe me and people thought I was crazy until I found Integrative MD's who believed me, supported me and helped heal my body from chronic illness. Throughout the last 10 years, I've learned to embrace my health issues and inspire others with my passion and determinatiom to get well. Yesterday, I received AMAZING BLOODWORK RESULTS from my doctor. For the first time in almost 20 years, my LIVER, THYROID, WHITE BLOOD CELLS, ENTIRE CELL COUNT PANNEL AND MUCH MORE were PERFECT!!!! I called my parents and they were crying tears of JOY and so was I. I'm living proof that you can DETOX your body from toxins, chemicals, pesticides, Candida and much more by healing your gut and removing toxins that are suppressing your organs. I hope my story continues to inspire all of you. My focus now is on balancing my hormones from Lyme disease and then I'll be good as new! Yay.

Great account of "The Thoreau of the Suburbs" - "When Annie Dillard was writing Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, she didn’t think anyone would want to read a memoir by a "Virginia housewife." Her mundane surroundings make her achievement even more impressive. Others hunted down awe-inspiring experiences in the wilds of Arches National Park, or the glaciers of Southeast Alaska. Dillard walked around her own neighborhood and captured a world that was buzzing with wonders and horrors."
Book And Turned, Teaching Bookshelf, Horror
The Thoreau of the Suburbs When Annie Dillard wrote Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, she didn’t think anyone would want to read a memoir by a "Virginia housewife." So she left her domestic life out of the book—and turned her surroundings into a wilderness.
