Quote by Gene Fowler
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
This quote highlights the intense inner struggle and fear that accompanies the decision to confront a challenging situation for the first time. It illustrates that this seemingly simple act of removing a tooth can symbolize the courage and emotional battle one faces when challenged with something unfamiliar, even if it may appear mundane to others. It acknowledges the significance, fear, and anxiety that come with stepping out of one's comfort zone, and emphasizes the personal growth and resilience that can result from overcoming such obstacles.
February 13, 1936I ask of people more than they can give me. It is useless to maintain the contrary. But what a mistake and what despair. And myself perhaps...Seek contacts. All contacts. If I want to write about men, should I stop talking about the countryside? If the sky or light attract me, shall I forget the eyes or voices of those I love? Each time I am given the elements of a friendship, the fragments of an emotion, never the emotion or the friendship itself.
