Today's inspiring quote comes from a poet I'd never heard of before in my life (a sad comment on the state of my life-long avoidance of poetry, which I'm trying to grow out of), Eileen Myles. She was interviewed on Debbie Millman's beautiful podast, Design Matters:

"Be yourself and let that be your shield."

Be yourself. Let that be your shield. There is so much packed into this simple saying it's going to take me a few days to unpack it in my mind. But that's the kind of work I really enjoy doing.
