I am still undecided as to which fig I'll attempt to pluck this week, so I can't find a necessarily applicable quote. Instead, I'll go with another favorite, and I've chosen one that is forceful and strong. Coming off the heels of my big European adventure and subsequent illness(s), I feel I need a good shove into this new week.
This week's quote comes from George Bernard Shaw:
You don't learn to hold your own in the world by standing on guard, but by attacking and getting well-hammered yourself.
