May Sarton said, "the deeper you go, the more universal you become." It's a reminder to me that those things I try to convince myself I don't need to admit are usually those things I need the most to say. Speaking the truth, in its most poignant details, is liberating and gives those around us the freedom to be real.
Quoted by Katherine Martin in Women of Courage: Inspiring Stories from the Women Who Lived Them, p. 269 (1999)
Honor your humanness and all of your feelings - the messy ones, the growing pains, the ache - because we can't have the dark without the light.Sabrina Ward Harrison
