Some things that inspire me:
— Really good turn of phrase. From Jazz by Toni Morrison, which I just finished reading:
I want to be in a place already made for me, both snug and wide open. With a doorway never needing to be closed, a view slanted for light and bright autumn leaves but not rain. Where moonlight can be counted on if the sky is clear and stars no matter what.
— Warren Buffett. He just announced he’d be giving much of his fortune to improve world health and education. And maybe equally inspiring, he lives in the same house in Omaha, Neb. which he bought in 1958 for $31,500.
— The New York Times. For thoughtfully continuing its quest to inform people because they have a right to know, the essence of a free press.
