This is a beautiful and profound statement. One that gives you pause and makes you think. While I admit that I don’t have a strong personal connection to it, I am a fan of Frida Kahlo as well as Maria Popova, of Brain Pickings, which is where I first encountered the quote.
I chose to share it today mostly my for admiration of these women, who in addition to their intelligence, also possess great passion. Maria has made a career of her passion for curiosity and discovery. She’s delights us daily on Brain Pickings with her findings .
Frida, well she is just the embodiment of passion, is she not? Not only did she show passion in her art but in her romantic heart. Above is an excerpt from one of many love letters Frida wrote to Diego Rivera. For more, check out the full book review for The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait, from which this quote was taken, on Brain Pickings.
Here’s to a fresh and passionate start to the week!
