A Quotable Mention

I'd like to share these lovely words from my blogging friend, Rabbi Neil Fleischmann, over at NY's Funniest Rabbi.

Writing is like life: we think we control it but we don't, everyone else's seems better, and there's ambivalent yet abundant hope that with enough time we'll get it right.

Bit like design.

At university I'd do my work and hope that it would be ok and then they'd put out all the assignments for critique and there was always other peoples work that you wish you'd come up with because it's so good!

Sarah, there's ALWAYS someone whose work we deem better than our own. Perhaps that's also why we strive to achieve lofty personal goals...
