What an inspiring woman!
She said she had two rules she followed absolutely:
- to tell the truth
- not to do anything she didn't want to do
From the first page her spirit shines through and one cannot help being inspired by her words. I loved it from the first page (and immediately orded my own copy off Amazon.com!). Her opening statement is "Everyone is Talented, Original and Has Something Important to Say". And she spends the rest of the book convincing us with humour and forthright honesty that this is certainly true.
Here is one of my favourite quotes from the book:
"For when you come to think of it, the only way to love a person is not, as the stereotyped Christian notion is, to coddle them and bring them soup when they are sick, but by listening to them and seeing and believing in the god, in the poet, in them. For by doing this, you keep the god and the poet alive and make it flourish.''
I highly recommend you find yourself a copy of this book and READ IT! Your creative spirit will be eternally grateful!
