“If Resistance couldn’t be beaten, there would be no Fifth Symphony, no Romeo and Juliet, no Golden Gate Bridge. Defeating Resistance is like giving birth. It seems absolutely impossible until you remember that women have been pulling it off successfully, with support and without, for fifty million years.”
-p. 57, The War of Art, Steven Pressfield
My roommate is going to be a labor and delivery nurse. We’ve been talking (read: she’s been talking, I’ve been pretending to be busy tidying up and unaffected by what she’s saying) a lot about childbirth lately. And it does seem impossible, but apparently it happens. I mean, I’m here. So are you.
The same goes for creation.
