During these extraordinary times, I have found an abundance of comfort in reading books and quotes that fuel my soul and fill my cup.
Some quotes that I’ve encountered lately include…
“As long as you live, keep learning how to live.” Seneca
“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” Helen Keller
“The purpose of literature is to turn blood into ink.” T.S. Eliot
“Look at you comforting others with the words you wish to hear.” William Wordsworth
“We’ve got to be as clear-headed about human beings as possible, because we are still each other’s only hope.” James Baldwin
“A drop of ink may make a million think.” Lord Byron
We are each other’s only hope. In the words we share. In the messages we write. In the way we walk our own talk. May we read the stories that turn blood into ink and find solace in those who have walked a similar path before.
Words have power. May we share that power with others. Because as Ram Dass once said, “We’re all just walking each other home.”
