Here are some wise words taken from books I have read over the years.
Some of these words are tough to hear. Some are wonderfully liberating. Some say better than I could what I have vaguely thought.
I pass them on because I hope you will also find a few of them helpful in shaping your response to the twists and turns of everyday living. You may even be tempted sometimes to read the whole book.
“You should never allow any person or institution to own or control your longing."
— John O'Donohue, Eternal Echoes
