quote du jour ~lesser – in the end, what will matter…

In the end, what will matter is how much we loved—our children, our mates, our families, our friends, everyone we knew, everyone who traveled with us during our brief visit to this unbearably lovely place. What will matter is the good we did, not the good we expected others to do.

    • It is a powerful book…well-written, full of honesty and insight. I was actually thinking of doing a mini-review, so keep an eye out. I’ve also been thinking of adding a list of favorite spiritual books to the blog. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! :)

  1. Thanks for this. Elizabeth Lesser’s words are always so beautiful and comforting and, well, really present if you know what I mean. Reminds me of Jon Kabat Zinn. I’ll be on the lookout for the favorite spiritual books list that you talked about. Always looking for good recommendations.

    • Yes, I agree. I’ve only recently discovered her writing, and it is very present. I haven’t read Jon Kabat Zinn, but will put him on my list based on your recommendation. Thanks
