There are several things I would like to write, but my husband wants me to come watch a movie on the couch with him, and this here will wait. Just a couple quotes for you before I go (I write new quotations in the beginning of each of my notebooks. I’m about to start another – any suggestions?).
If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverence.
And this, with Loralee’s post the other day in mind.
We ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.
-Thornton Wilder, The Bridge of San Luis Rey
