Sharpening the Spirit

Rifling though my dog-eared manilla folder of good quotes today, this one by William Faulkner barked to be heard:

People need trouble — a little frustration to sharpen the spirit, toughen it. Artists do; I don’t mean you need to live in a rat hole or gutter, but you have to learn fortitude, endurance.

Creativity and wellness message for today:  Appreciate wisdom from unexpected sources.
