Life holds few mysteries greater than those concerning the wellsprings of creativity.  Thinkers down through the ages have developed many theories about what keeps the springs flowing and what causes them to dry up.  Freud proposed one of the most enduring when he suggested that the sublimation of sexual energy fosters the artistic temperament and the creative impulse.  But he denied that he, or psychoanalysis, could provide much else by way of explanation.  “Before the problem of the creative artist,” Freud remarked in a study of Dostoyevsky, “analysis must, alas, lay down its arms.”

Human beings are funny.  They long to be with the person they love but refuse to admit openly.  Some are afraid to show even the slightest sign of affection because of fear.  Fear that their feelings may not be recognized, or even worst, returned.  But one thing about human beings puzzles me the most is their conscious effort to be connected with the object of their affection even if it kills them slowly within.

It is impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement  —  that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.

Well worth a visit…   I suppose unlike a dream deferred, at least it (the thought) does not fester and run – or explode.   …Or maybe it does.     —    KMAB]

Words have a magical power.  They can bring either the greatest happiness or deepest despair; they can transfer knowledge from teacher to student; words enable the orator to sway his audience and dictate its decisions.  Words are capable of arousing the strongest emotions and prompting all men’s actions.
