…on your willingness to acquire knowledge about hidden parts of yourself…

P1050116I have been reading a book recommended to me by a friend, and I want to recommend it to you.

“Marriage is a psychological and spiritual journey that begins in the ecstasy of attraction, meanders through a rocky stretch of self-discovery, and culminates in the creation of an intimate, joyful, lifelong union. Whether or not you realize the full potential of this vision depends not on your ability to attract the perfect mate, but on your willingness to acquire knowledge about hidden parts of yourself.” (Harville Hendrix, Getting the Love You Want)

The thought strikes me that a “willingness to acquire knowledge about hidden parts of yourself” is what is required for any journey, including writing a novel.
