The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one’s own.”   —   Willa Cather

(At first glance, this sounded to me like the musings of a jaded lover.  But at second glance, I see it more as there is just no way to know what lies in another’s heart, because we are all individuals.  We’ve all seen, heard, felt . . . experienced things under different times and circumstances.  We like to think we know what someone is feeling, because most things in life happen to all of us, but never in exactly the same way.  We are all the sum of our individual experiences.  But regardless, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I shall not die of a cold.  I shall die of having lived.”   —   Willa Cather

(Atta girl, Willa!  This is the first Willa Cather quote since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  It’s a name I haven’t heard in quite some time.  My mother – who is MUCH better read than I – had the books of her Prairie Trilogy.  I definitely remember O Pioneers!.  I’m sure some of you out there have read her.  If not, then give her a shot.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
