Favorite Books Part II - One Loved Quote

Before I get to the rest of the post...let me congratulate Erin (who wrote our book review) who found out last night that she got accepted into the graduate program in education at Harvard!! You're amazing, E. Harvard just got very, very lucky.

"One small piece of advice. In a spot like this, do not go too far afield for help. Either it is right near you, in your heart, or it is nowhere. It is not a question of character, it is a question of reality. If you try to be strong, you will be weak. If you try to understand, you will go crazy. No, reality is not your character which, for its part, is only a by-product - I can't define it, a collection of elements. Reality is Here and Now. It is the life you are living in the moment. Don't be afraid to lose your soul there, for God is in it." --Jacques Lusseyran, And There Was Light

Thanks for your recommendation Erin!
