Skywatch Friday: Moonlit
|From August 13, 2011|
I came across this quote of Helen Hayes in mybirth year and liked it very much. It made me think of the things I've come to realize the thousand and one times I have walked this beach in every kind of light.
Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up. That he has to leave the nest, the security, and go out to do battle. He has to lose everything that is lovely and fight for a new loveliness of his own making, and it's a tragedy. A lot of people don't have the courage to do it. (Helen Hayes, in Roy Newquist, Showcase, 1966)
