Thought for the day

The last post was so unwholesome and skeezy that I think we all need a palate cleanser:

It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim is a sin.
Benjamin E Mayes.

"Sin" is a pretty harsh word there, fella. And also, while I admire Mr Mayes' sentiments, I am willing to bet that he wouldn't have thought it a calamity if the dream to create this had remained unfulfilled:

Mem-Art Ceramics and Gifts
Noble failure or outright disaster? Your call.

(Side note: if you want to be completely creeped out, you should A) check out the unpainted version of this and B) brave the horrors of Mem-Art's unicorn babies.)
