sharin' some more....

still too dark to take a walk, so thought i'd type out a few tidbits
from the book (women who run with the wolves) that i thought were awesome -

"A culture that requires harm to one's soul in order to follow the culture's
proscriptions is a very sick culture indeed. This "culture" can be the one
a woman lives in, but more damning yet, it can be the one she carries around
and complies with within her own mind."

oooooooooohhh.......i just loved that.

and then there's this -

"If you have attempted to fit whatever mold and failed to do so,
you are probably lucky. You may be an exile of some sort, but you have
sheltered your soul. There is an odd phenomenon that happens when
one keeps trying to fit and fails. Even though the outcast is driven
away, she is at the same time driven right into the arms of her psychic
group of people. It is worse to stay where one does not belong at all
than to wander about lost for a while and looking for the psychic and
soulful kinship one requires. It is never a mistake to search for what
one requires."

i love those.
and i love her words.
'sheltered your soul.'
oh man, i love that.

had to share.......
