Quote for the Day

"For loneliness is but cutting adrift from our moorings and floatng out to the open sea; an opportunity for finding ourselves, our real selves, what we are about, where we are heading during our little time on this beautiful earth."

~ Anne Shannon Monroe, Singing in the Rain, 1926
