"Conversation. What is it? A Mystery! It's the art of never seeming bored, of touching everything with interest, of pleasing with trifles, of being fascinating with nothing at all. How do we define this lively darting about with words, of hitting them back and forth, this sort of brief smile of ideas which should be conversation?" Guy de Maupassant

Thought for the Day - Follow Your Bliss

I've been collecting some neat quotes on following passions ... here's a collection of thoughts i love and would hope to embrace : 

"Follow your bliss and doors will open where there were no doors before." -- Joseph Campbell

"Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark." -- Henri Frederic Amiel

"There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life." -- Frederico Fellini

"It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all."  Edward de Bono

And this is my most favourite :

"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures." - Henry Ward Beecher
