Quote of the Day: You Are Not Lonely

You May Be Surprised Where This Quote Came From...

Beautiful Sky

…So do not be lonely. You are just alone. It is like saying you are old. I am not old; I’m just older. –  Anna

I pull my quotes of the day from a great number of places. 8 times out of 10 they’re quotes I’ve recently read, thought about, or recently “called on” for inspiration or motivation.  Today’s quote of the day is a rare bird: It’s taken from a comment left here on Self Help Daily.

The comment was left on a post about Overcoming Loneliness, but that’s not even remotely important compared to the comment, itself – or more importantly the author of the comment.  Anna has been a widow for a year.  When I read that – at the first of her comment – my heart sank.  I thought, “Bless her heart…” (we Kentuckians are always blessing someone’s heart).  Then after I read a little more, I realized, this is one very special lady and simply refuses to hand over her joy to life’s circumstances.

Her words, her demeanor, her grace, and her spirit touched me and I wanted to pass it along.

To read her entire comment, go to the post, scroll down to the comments, and look for Anna.  You’re going to love her.

One thought on “Quote of the Day: You Are Not Lonely

  1. Oh I like that quote!!! Very philosophical. I was thinking of doing a category on my blog “30 days to a better life” and of course post each day a way to better your life. At the top I was thinking of putting strong quotes to pull readers in. This is the kind of quotes I hope to find. Since my blog is about self improvement, this quote shows some wisdom with a positive outlook. Can’t beat that. Is there a certain place you go to look for quotes or do you just do a search? Or maybe run by them randomly? Nothing is better than a good quote. I am a fan of proverbs from other backgrounds since they are full of growth and wisdom. Good post!!!
