Embrace your curiosity and let go of needless suffering. Elizabeth Gilbert’s, Big Magic, shares how you can live your most creative life.
I do nothing but go about persuading you all, old and young alike, not to take thought for your persons or your properties, but and chiefly to care about the greatest improvement of the soul.

This is my teaching, and if this is the doctrine which corrupts the youth, I am a mischievous person. ~ Socrates
