Susan, love the Mary Oliver quote you use to tag your posts. I'm in the process of reading everything I can get my hands on that she writes.

Success is measured not by the position one reaches but by the obstacles one has to overcome to reach it. Booker T. Washington

Judy and Susan, that got my interest. I don't think I've ever read any thing by Mary Oliver. I'll do some research on her writings. Thanks.

Thanks, Judy. I have her on my list of things to check out.
"How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all people, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us." Rainer Maria Rilke
Marly

Susan: When I read that long quote, my memories flashed back to the TV show of Beauty & the Beast, which I absolutely loved. I do remember hearing those same words read or cited by Vincent, the Beast.

This poem is kind of long to be considered a quotation but I love the message and the pictures the words paint.

Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting–
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

© Mary Oliver

I love that poem. I just bought a book of poetry by Mary Oliver. She makes you see the miraculous in the mundane.

Sorry I haven't put any new quotes. I am in the middle of moving to Texas. When I am settled and my computer is up and running again, I will be able to put quotes again. Hopefully Susan will continue with her quotes.
