This week I've been doing some major paper purging. I have discovered all kinds of notes, poems, cards, etc... but... mostly junk. Here is something worth sharing:
"In an age of widespread equality, the masses, desiring security above all else, will gladly accept despotism in order to gain release from the burden of responsibility that freedom imposes on people." --Fyodor Dostoevsky
Written over 100 years ago. Yet it still reminds me of the American people who demand security from the government in exchange for personal liberty. Not to mention those timid souls who choose the "security" of employment over the "freedom" of freelancing.
P.S. Today, June 13, marks my two-year anniversary since launching my freelance copywriting business.
