Today’s Quotation: Sherwood Anderson – On finding the object of love

 

I am a lover and have not found my thing to love.

Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941) Discuss


My take on this: If we were to love just one thing, more than anything else in the world…we would become it; I would not like being the ocean, but the sailboat, slashing the surface of its waters. Or the wind, or the bird resting in its migration for a while on my boat’s mast, or the , or the Moon…While restrict myself to loving just one thing? Why reject so many others, why classify, why rank…love life – love all.
