"Life comes in clusters, clusters of solitude, then clusters when there
is hardly time to breathe."
~May Sarton, American writer
Quotes really do help me put life in perspective. I let them sink in. I post them on the refrigerator door. I tell them to my friends and family. I read them to my boys. I keep a log of the ones that help me make sense of my time at. this. moment.
The quote above promises me a cluster of solitude. And I believe it. I will hang on to it. It will get me through this cluster.
Some seem like they are reading my mind. Others I see telling the future. And still some give me great comfort on my roughest day. Oh, sure they are simple. To simplistic for some. But I have found life really is simple. I just make it very complicated most of the time.
Many time I read a quote or hear a saying and look up and say "thank you Lord, I heard it." He really does have to get me in many different ways. I am a slow learner. Putting myself in charge and in control. A quote can really slow me down. He knows my language. I am thankful for that.
A good quote can be like a life raft on a day of drowning.
