Monday Motivator: Powder Exists in Charcoal

Monday Motivator Motivation Quote

A Man May Make a Remark
by Emily Dickinson

A man may make a remark —
In itself — a quiet thing
That may furnish the fuse unto a spark
In dormant nature — lain —

Let us deport — with skill —
Let us discourse — with care —
Powder exists in charcoal —
Before it exists in fire.

Now change “man” to “artist”.
Then “remark” to “mark”.

Shadows in the Night
