225 Days ’til 40: One Foot Forward

11 Jul

“For this is what we do. Put one foot forward and then the other. Lift our eyes to the snarl and smile of the world once more. Think. Act. feel. Add our little consequence to the tides of good and evil that flood and drain the world. Drag our shadowed crosses into the hope of another night. Push our brave hearts into the promise of a new day. With love; the passionate search for truth other than our own. With longing; the pure, ineffable yearning to be saved. For so long as fate keeps waiting, we live on.”  ~ Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

Sometimes a quote is so powerful, nothing more needs to be said.

Live on!
