Quotation Saturday


We all have, without exception, a very deep longing to give--to give to the Earth, to give to others, to give to society, to work, to love, to care for this Earth. That's true for every human being. And even the ones who don't find it, it's because it has been squashed or somehow suppressed in some brutal way in their life. But it's there to be discovered. We all long for that.
--Jack Kornfield

Love the three quotes under "ask" - priceless! The Winnie the pooh one is great, and the other two a reminder: What would like be without challenges?
