Quote from The Year of Pleasures

"Some mornings, when I read the newspaper, I wanted to weep or pound my fists on the table in frsutration. Some mornings, I actually did one of the other. But the museums offered up the other side of humanity: the glory and the grace." Elizabeth Berg, The Year of Pleasures, p 99

I loved reading this because I so often feel the same way when listening to NPR. I can't believe the choices our government makes for us. But art and poetry and music all show that we can be beautiful, we can transcend.
I am certain of nothing but the Heart's affections and the truth of the Imagination- John Keats
