Looking through a plethora of quotes I found interesting, my King and I fell in love with this quote by Laurie Halse Anderson form her novel “Speak”. I haven’t read the novel but checking it out on the net, it deals with rape, trauma and other mature details
Being expressive couples ourselves, we found this quote to be true. The mere fact that you have the ability to express yourself and you choose not to, is being equated to death and not a sudden death that makes it easy to bear, but one where you fall off a piece at a time.
I don’t know about other aspects of education, but I know artists love to express themselves (sculptors …like my King or poets like Shakespeare and I wink ) and the power to be able to do that through whatever medium is too awesome to relinquish for slow boring death!
Here’s a toast to all who express themselves and LIVE! KEEP DOING IT!
