People Who Exemplify This Quality: Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) American Political Activist and Speaker

Quote: Have you ever had one of those moments when you know that you’re being visited by your own future? They come so rarely and with little fanfare, those moments. They’re not particularly photogenic. There’s no breach in the clouds to reveal the shining city on a hill. No folk dancing children outside your bus, no production values to speak of – just a glimpse of such quotidian, incontrovertible truth that after the initial shock at the supreme weirdness of it all, a kind of calm sets in. So this is to be my life. — David Benjamin Rakoff (1964–2012) Canadian-born American writer of prose and poetry
     Note: The “moment” Mr. Kakoff mentions is usually a simple tendency like having a sense of order or wonder or rhythm. A natural-born inclination should be noticed and nurtured. It can lead in many directions; but all of them can turn out to be satisfying professions.
