A quote

The paradox of the arts is that they are all made up and yet they allow us to get at truths about who and what we are or might be. - Seamus Heaney (h/t Cristian Mihai, irevuo.art)

Truth from Machiavelli

When you disarm the people, you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred. -- Niccolo Machiavelli

The thing you need most is always to be found where you fear to look. Don't let fear and doubt -- or even simply the lure of comfort -- hold you back. Go out into the storm, enter that dark cave, and face down the monster inside. h/t Searching For Dragons
