Slightly deeper than usual

I was asked to put together some thoughts about keeping a personal record. And, well, since that is one of the functions of blogging, I thought it might be interesting to post about and share my findings.

Thought #1: "Your journal (or blog) is your autobiography, so it should be kept carefully. You are unique, and there may be incidents in your experience that are more noble and praiseworthy in their way than those recorded in any other life.”

Thought #2: "No one is commonplace, and I doubt if you can ever read a biography (or blog) from which you cannot learn something from the difficulties overcome and the struggles made to succeed. These are the measuring rods for the progress of humanity."

(quotes from Spencer W. Kimball, “‘The Angels May Quote from It’,” Tambuli, Jun 1977, 16)
