On Mondays, I’ll try to post something inspirational – a quote, a bit of poetry, a work of art – to give myself and anyone who reads this something good and true to take into the week. Since St. Francis De Sales is the patron saint of writers and today is his feast day, here’s a quote from him:
“You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working and just so, you learn to love by loving. All those who think to learn in any other way deceive themselves.”
This week, I will try to learn to be a better writer, mother and wife just by being those things, by doing what they require and learning the wisdom those acts of doing hold.
