I asked a friend to pick the word today. It’s how I pick a quote every day. As I’ve stated before, I find a word, search for a quote, and procure something thoughtful. Today’s word was preoccupy. Then I found this fantastic quote.
If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way; if you don’t, you’ll find an excuse. In times when the passions are beginning to take charge of the conduct of human affairs, one should pay less attention to what men of experience and common sense are thinking than to what is preoccupying the imagination of dreamers. – Alexis de Tocqueville
