Judith F. Bradshaw
When you are inspired by some great purpose,
some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds;
Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction,
and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
(circa first-third century BC)
