Who Lives Behind Your Face?

Quotes and Notes #284, August 15

Hello in there

Hello in there

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”—Maya Angelou—

I am about to turn seventy and I have been looking back on the eventful decade of my sixties. It occurs to me that this past decade, I have been occupied with overcoming the defeats of my fifties—of finding out who really lives behind this face.

Who lives behind your face? I’ll bet it is someone who has the courage to rise up quickly after falling. Getting up seems to make the falling less of a problem. Move on.

Someone who is down needs one of your smiles today
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
