To remain tight in a bud was more painful - Day 05 - 30 Days of Me

Day 05 - Your favorite quote

I don't really have a favorite quote. There are various quotes that I like for various reasons, but there is not one that stands out above the rest as being something I consider an ultimate guiding principle, or anything like that. Over the years, I have at times compiled a few lists of quotes that I liked, so today I chose one of those. I like the sentiment, and it's prettily written as well:

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. - Anaïs Nin
