Joy and Sorrow

There is an alchemy in sorrow. It can be transmuted into wisdom, which, if it does not bring joy, can yet bring happiness.
Pearl S. Buck

How mysterious the link between joy and sorrow. I hope that any trace of sorrow in your life today will yet bring you happiness.

Those are very wise words, Cuppa. Do you read Thomas Moore? He has a new book out called Dark Night of the Soul. CBC radio has an interview with Moore, which you can listen to at http://www.cbc.ca/tapestry/archives/2004/102404.html.

I enjoy your quotes, Cuppa, but look forward to your original posts resuming.
