Quote of the day

I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.–  Anne Morrow Lindbergh who was born on this day in 1906.

    Thank you, Valerie, I agree about the insight although I hadn’t joined the dots between the kidnapping and the author.
