Foolishness


Each day, and the living of it, has to be a conscious creation in which discipline and order are relieved with some play and pure foolishness. ~May Sarton

discipline and order are necessary but they should be limited to a few hours a day. play and foolishness should prevail!

I too agree with Polona...but then, foolishness and play are my natural self...I don't have to be conscious with it, i guess

discipline and order are something i strive at the end of the day :))

Nice quote and a delightful image GZ :)

reminds me of a quote : "be orderly and disciplined in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work" - flaubert
i'm sure, by violent and original, he meant playful and creative...
just like that fun image! thanks :)
