I invented this rule for myself to be applied to every decision I might have to make in the future.
I would sort out all the arguments and see which belonged to fear and which to creativeness,
and other things being equal,
I would make the decision which had the larger number of creative reasons on its side.
I think it must be a rule something like this that makes jonquils and crocuses come pushing through cold mud.
(Katherine Butler Hathaway, 1890 – 1942)
