Simple Truth #1

Standard

I finally started reading Simple Truths.  It’s one of those lovely books to give to a graduate, or one of those books to re-read every few years. The author has such a wise way of simplifying the BIG issues in life (work, education, love, etc.) without sounding preach-y. It’s a quick read but I feel as if I just had lunch with one of my life mentors.

Here’s one of my favorite quotes from the travel section:
“When I am old, and my body has begun to fail me, my memories will be waiting for me. They will lift me and carry me over mountains and oceans. I will hold them and turn them and watch them catch the sunlight as they come alive once more in my imagination. I will be rich and I will be at peace.
I want you to have that peace, too.”

Of course, I’d love to hear what resonates with you if you’re reading/read this book.
