In My Mind

“I’ve got this little thing I have learnt to do lately. When it gets so bad, and I think I can’t go on, I try to make it worse. I make myself think about our camp on the river, and Berkeley, and the first time that you took me flying. How good it all was. And when I’m certain that I can’t stand it, I go one moment more. And then I know I can bear anything.”

— KAREN VON BLIXEN-FINECKE, Out of Africa

    1. And, for me, you were already a champ.

      P.S. - Where are you stealing your quotes from these days?
