I love Anna Quindlen and she's so right. We're all ultimately responsible for our own happiness.
alaine - what a superb quote. nice photograph also!! steven
Susan...to be perfectly honest, I've just found her and will go and read more about her.
Steven...it is a very real quote and the photo I took today; funny how I've walked past that cheval so many times and never noticed that charming reflection through the door.
Ah, such profound words. Lovely photo, too, Alaine!
We are free to make choices about our outlook on life! I've read two of Quindlen's novels, "Every Last One", about love and grief and "One True Thing", about a daughter's relationship with her terminally ill mother. ...Wanda
Fabulous...I needed that!
Ah...great quote. I remember feeling this way when I was in my twenties...and not getting it until much later.
Oh...how I LOVE that! :)
I love how all of a sudden we see something in a different light and how much more special it is to us at that moment. Sometimes the simplest things can mean the most to us, don't you think? Cherish each moment and enjoy the small things in life. There are so many magical moments in our lives. We just have to become aware of them.
Willow...I'm ordering 'Savage Beauty'; you've convinced me.
Gypsy Purple... so happy it helped!
Wanda...that's what makes life so enjoyable! Which one of those did you enjoy most?
T...some never get it!
Betsy, you're a darling and a wonder! Amazing! Thankyou.
Teri...that is something that hits me in the face constantly; the small things matter more. Your comment so eloquently expressed. Thank you.
Hi Alaine,Yes, we just need the spark of realisation - but it can be illusive!
Wonderful beautiful quote - I’m liking it. Thanks.
