Quote of the Day – Ralph Ellison on Focus


I’ve been homework-focused all week. Therefore, I suffer from “Shiny-object” syndrome today. Everything I can do to distract myself from the task at hand, I want to do. Meanwhile, I’m not going to get anywhere by being flighty. So, today’s quote is a reminder for me, and maybe you, too.

But what a feeling can come over a man just from seeing the things he believes in and hopes for symbolized in the concrete form of a man. In something that gives a focus to all the other things he knows to be real. Something that makes unseen things manifest and allows him to come to his hopes and dreams through his outer eye and through the touch and feel of his natural hand. – Ralph Ellison
