Wednesday Wisdom: Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury again

“Just write every day of your life.
Read intensely. Then see what happens.
Most of my friends who are put on
that diet have very pleasant careers.”
—  Ray Bradbury  —

Wednesday Wisdom: Salman Rushdie

Salman Rushdie

“Go for broke. Always try and do too much.
Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath
before you begin talking. Aim for the stars.
Keep grinning. Be bloody-minded. Argue with the world.
And never forget that writing is as close as we get
to keeping a hold on the thousand and one things–
childhood, certainties, cities, doubts, dreams,
instants, phrases, parents, loves–
that go on slipping , like sand,
through our fingers.”

~ Salman Rushdie ~

Wednesday Wisdom: M. C. Escher

Which reality is actually more powerful:

that of the present, instantly absorbed by our senses and discernible,

or the memory of what we experienced previously?

Is the present truly more real than the past?

I really do not feel capable of answering this.
