A Glass of Possibility, Please


“If I were to wish for anything I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of what can be, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating as possibility?”
—Soren Kirkegaard, Either/Or

Wow ... that is a nice positive thought to start 2012 with! The possibilities of 2012 are unimaginable at the moment.

That's one of the best things about a new year--anything seems possible!

What a great quote!

It perfectly describes that moment before action takes place when anything can happen!
