|"Knowlege is only rumor until it is in the muscle."|
Notes on the tile: Fife and Facade are more open patterns and could represent knowledge before it incarnates and manifests into the denser material -- the muscle -- represented by Hurry, Betweed, Xircus, and Paradox (maybe especially Paradox). I drew the tile weeks before I came across the quote, so this is a post hoc analysis.
Notes on the quotes: I enthusiastically recommend exploring the work of Brene Brown, a scholar and storyteller who has spent the last decade (and maybe a few more years) researching shame and vulnerability. She's done a couple of TED talks, written a number of books, and appeared on Oprah's Soul Sunday, to name a few places you can find her. I discovered a very nice write-up of Rising Strong on brainpickings. The article posted there provides an excellent capsule summary of the book.
