QUOTE OF THE DAY

“You have a right to experiment with your life. You will make mistakes. And they are right too. No I think there was too rigid a pattern. You came out of an education and are supposed to know your vocation. Your vocation is fixed, and maybe ten years later you find you are not a teacher anymore or you’re not a painter anymore It may happen. It has happened. I mean Gaugin decided at a a certain point he wasn’t a banker anymore; he was a painter. And so he walked away from banking. I think we have a right to change course. But society is the one thing that keeps demanding that we fit in and not disturb things. They would like you to fit in right away so that things work now.”-Anais Nin
