I started reading an other book where I read, in its Introduction, the phrase written in bold below (I am quoting the full paragraph in which it is mentioned) which I do not understand because it seems to me the meaning is cut somehow. Or maybe I am missing something. Note that when the bold phrase below ends, a totally new paragraph begins:
I have discovered that as we learn to accept change as a fact of life, and accept grief and growth cycles as a definition of the process that makes us "change resilient", creativity increases. Every time we manifest our personality -some aspect of how we think, what we think, who we like, what we do, how we see and solve a problem, how we express our feelings- every single way we, "Insist on ourselves!" as Emerson would say, we paint a picture of the world to see. The stronger and bolder these pictures become mirror our courage to face crisis and overcome them, using life energy in the service of growth.
For me, the phrase would make sense only if we put a comma between become and mirror, where mirror is a verb not a noun. Otherwise, I am not able to understand this. Please clarify me if you know.
P.S. The paragraph I quoted exists in a book called: Taking Advantage of Adversity: How to Move from Crisis to Creativity
