I love quotes. I have them plastered on my walls, around my desk, above my mirror, in my car, on my clothes, mugs, cards, everywhere. Some people collect dolls. I collect quotes. I posted a quote on my blog and it got me thinking. I was hoping you could add some of your favorite quotes, about living life with diabetes, or just life in general. I could use some inspiration today. One quote I love that reminds me of my life with diabetes–all the sticking–the bumps, bruises, fingerprick marks, hardened skin, and it comes from Jane Hirschfield’s “For What Binds Us.” It is:
“…see how the flesh grows back across a wound, with a great vehemence, more strong than the simple, untested surface before. There’s a name for it on horses, whwen it come back darker and raised: proud flesh, as all flesh is proud of its wounds, wears them as honors given out after battle, small triumphs pinned to the chest–”
Can you share a quote you love with me?
