Thoughtful Thursday: Nikola Tesla says YOU are a work of art!

It’s been great getting back into the swing of things! I hope you’ve been enjoying your new year so far and thanks for joining in today. 🙂

Work of Art Nikola Tesla Quote

I’m not a religious person per se, but this quote struck a chord when I found it, though I could be biased as I’m a fan of Tesla.

“Everyone should consider his body as a priceless gift from one whom he loves above all, a marvelous work of art, of indescribable beauty, and mystery beyond human conception, and so delicate that a word, a breath, a look, nay, a thought may injure it.” -Nikola Tesla

I’ve read and reread this and found such stunning beauty in his choice of words and truth in the frailty of humanity he spoke of.

I’ve found myself feeling so many ups and downs these past few years and sometimes the most offhand thing said could leave me feeling crushed. I certainly don’t enjoy those moments, but that’s what this quote brought to mind when I read it. My mental image to give you an equivalent (if you haven’t felt in the same boat), would be something like a world famous boxer (take your pick) getting knocked over by a feather.

I struggle to find words sometimes, I don’t want to push people out of my way or my life, just spilling my guts everywhere. I also know that without a soul, without feeling something, I don’t believe that art would exist. I feel that everyone at least starts with a creative spark within them, sometimes it’s snuffed out during life’s trials… in others, it’s a raging passion that engulfs everything. I’m just trying to tiptoe some type of balance and be a useful person.

Let me know your thoughts… Have you kept balance? Or jumped off the edge?
