I would love to share with you every week an inspirational book, quote and a youtube video.
Video: Do Schools Kill Creativity? by Ken Robinson.
Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating a system of education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

Book: Covenant of Water by Abraham Verghese.
Dr. Verghese is an American Physician, author and Vice Chair of Education at Stanford University Medical School. My best friend told me about the book as she read it, and I feel like I read it, too. Amazing!
Quote: Writer Jorge Luis Borges on transforming every experience into a resource:
"A writer — and, I believe, generally all persons — must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art."
