Quotation Monday #15: Creativity

Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Creativity gives the possibility of some sort of achievement to everyone. Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.

Quotation Monday #7: National anthem

Since it is the Norwegian constitution day today.

Norway, thine is our devotion,
Land of hearth and home,
Rising storm-scarr’d from the ocean,
Where the breakers foam.
Oft to thee our thoughts are wending,
Land that gave us birth,
And to saga nights still sending
Dreams upon our earth,
And to saga nights still sending
Dreams upon us on our earth

– The first verse of the Norwegian National Anthem, translated to English

No cake today (although, I did make a fantastic Devil’s Food Cake and a Lemon Cake for my sister’s birthday, which are sure to pop up again some time.) but rather the introduction of a new concept on the site.

I love quotations. The inspiration, the humour, and the food for thought. So, last night when I could not sleep, I decided that it was time to start every week with a randomly selected quote. Positive energy for the week ahead, if you wish.

I’m going to try to select quotes that speak to me on some level or another, and hope they speak to you, too.
