This Quote Got Me Thinking

Life without Liberty is like a body without spirit. Liberty without thought is like a disturbed spirit … Life, liberty, and thought — three persons in one substance, eternal, never-ending, and unceasing.“ — 

Khalil Gibran

This quote speaks on the two things I’ve been talking about Freedom and spirit. Part of me struggles with the end of this quote saying that Life liberty and thought are three persons. I think it’s a creative thought and it’s also a new thought. But I’d never think of those three things are person. However, as a fellow writer I would definitely style my characters to fit those three words. Life liberty and thought eternal? Never-ending? That also is an interesting take.

Are these things eternal?

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
