Quote From Buddhist Monk

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

Sharpie and highlighters (I was going to color it with adobe, but then I thought about applying the quote and remembered that highlighters make me smile AND bring me joy; whereas computers make me cry or fall asleep)

I'm including the context for this week's quote:

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we are reading doesn't wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? ... [W]e need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us."
-Franz Kafka

Also, I decided instead of going every other, I'm going to format all my ftf on the left and everything else on the right. Just thought I'd share that thrilling information.
