Sorry to offend but I’m not a fan of quarter horses? As a breed I mean not like individual quarter horses. They’re bred to have such tiny ankles and hooves and it really unbalances them and makes them prone to laminitis. I’m not a fan of most purebred breeds especially sporting breeds because they tend to develop health problems early and I wish the hyperselective breeding would stop because it only hurts the horses
Just as physical perseverance leads to endurance and performance, so spiritual perseverance leads to spiritual strength, endurance, and maturity in Christ. The message is clear: perseverance under pressure pleases God. God is not looking for perfection; He’s looking for and rewarding perseverance. Don’t give up the pursuit. Hang in there. Try again and again, because the reward is great.
I’m super excited to announce our first speaker for TEDxCUNY2015, Emma Sulkowicz. Here’s a little more information about her:
Emma Sulkowicz was born in 1992 in New York, NY, where she continues to live and make art. She is perhaps best known for her nine-month endurance performance titled Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) and her more recent work titled Ceci N’est Pas Un Viol.
These images document an endurance performance where the artist rowed himself across a 650ft field, inch-by-inch, in a wooden ribcage boat. An epic tragicomedy, this piece explores the difficulty of progress the futility in productivity, and the challenge of navigating the world in our own vessels of bones and flesh.
