things that motivate and inspire me

  • “”I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.” (Toni Morrison)
  • “There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” (Nelson Mandela)
  • “The thing you are most afraid to write. Write that.” (Nayyireh Waheed)
  • “If you don’t do it when you’re young, you never will. Don’t keep saying tomorrow or later. You’ll get comfortable and forget your dreams.” (Advice from Julia when I am hesitant to chase my dreams, January 2015)
