"Sharing your life story is a priceless gift that keeps on giving, generation after generation. Its price tag cannot be tallied; its value is inestimable.
FLANNERY O'CONNOR “The writer operates at a peculiar crossroads where time and place and eternity somehow meet. His problem is to find that location.”
Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets “My story is important not because it is mine, God knows, but because if I tell it anything like right, the chances are you will recognize that in many ways it is also yours… it is precisely through these stories in all their particularity...that God makes himself known to each of us more powerfully and personally. If this is true, it means that to lose track of our stories is to be profoundly impoverished not only humanly but also spiritually.”
THOMAS MERTON "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time."
