Susan Wittig Albert

  • Music keeps time and defies time, simultaneously.

  • Gratitude is the richest, most joyful feeling humans are privileged to experience.

  • Living in a culture that prefers to shut out the dark, avoid shadows, and anesthetize pain means that many people are isolated. ...

  • Home is why I bother / ... / Home is who's hoping to be there with me / Home is how I begin and end.

  • If Constance doesn't have a disaster every day, she thinks she's not living right. The trouble is, you can't always tell whether the sky is really falling, or it's just another bad-hair day.

Susan Wittig Albert, U.S. writer

(1940)
