I'm starting a new tradition on this blog of mine...I have been reading lots of books lately, even more than usual. And in my literary travels, I have stumbled across many, many fun bits of humor, brilliance, encouragement, and inspiration. Starting today, pop by here every Wednesday for Quotable Wednesdays, where I share some of these delightful musings. Today's comes from a book I simply can not say enough good things about. I hope you enjoy these bite-sized thoughts. Seems like just the thing for a Wednesday doesn't it?
"We know from myths and fairy tales that there are many different kinds of powers in this world. One child is given a light saber, another a wizard's education. The trick is not to amass all the different kinds of available power, but to use well the kind you've been granted. Introverts are offered keys to private gardens full of riches. To possess such a key is to tumble like Alice down her rabbit hole. She didn't choose to go to Wonderland - but she made of it an adventure that was fresh and fantastic and very much her own."
- Susan Cain
