Like so many of these quotes, this one has been traveling through life with me for so long I no longer remember its author or its source. But it’s just too meaningful not to share. If you know its heritage, please let me know.
“Where there is no risk, the emotional terrain is flat and unyielding, and, despite all its dimensions, valleys, pinnacles, and detours, life will seem to have none of its magnificent geography, only a length. It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.”
