quote du jour ~hoff – everything has its own place….

Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don’t seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don’t belong.

~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

~Martha Beck, “Making Time for Nothing”
