“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” 

~~ Louise Erdrich

  1. this reminds me of a saying in the bible,…..jesus says that the one who falls on the stone will be bruised,…but the one the stone falls on,….will be crushed…….

    it makes me think of the saying, THE HARD WAY,…OR THE EASY WAY???….

    in, with, and because of the selfish power of our human nature we tend to want things “OUR WAY”………the longer that we choose to deny, or dismiss, God’s presence in our lives,….the more that our selfish choices crush us,….i like this one,…….very much,…….thank you,….toksoon,….john e doe
