I keep a collection of "Quotes for Strength" in my Palm/phone. That way they are always with me & I can refer to them when needed.
Todd and I just finished the last DVD from the HBO series The Wire. This was shared by a character named Bubbles (aka Reginald) in the last few episodes:
"Ain't no shame in holding on to grief as long as you make room for other things."
The other I heard this morning. It was from Senator Joe Biden of Delaware, who lost his first wife and their young daughter in a car accident many years ago:
"The only way you deal with those things [tragedy], I think, is you just gotta focus on what's left . . . what you have."
I think both quotes are powerful enough to make my collection and share with all of you.
