Edith Sitwell

From Motivational Quotes of the Day:

Edith Sitwell: “Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.”


From Me:

Scars are evidence of a life well lived.

I said that to my daughter this past weekend when she was grousing about a scar on her leg from a recent knee surgery. Of course, I was talking about all kinds of scars; physical and emotional.

Anyway, I thought that was fairly profound… and I don’t say insightful things very often, so I thought I’d record it here 🙂
