Came across this Judy Garland quote:

Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else.

Do you wish you were like someone else? Does it spur you on to do better, or make you miserable and insecure?

here be dragons

Working hard on Rainbird at the moment, and I have dragons on the brain. Not the cute cuddly kind, nor the telepathic loyal-forever-and-ever sort.

No, these dragons are big and scary. Beware of them.

It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.

~ J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

~ Unknown

A good reminder that love is a verb more than it is a noun:

Do not waste time bothering whether you ‘love’ your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him.

~C. S. Lewis
