Quote of the Day for Thursday, September 1st, 2016 ... William Wordsworth

Famous quotes...

one for today

That though the radiance which was once so bright be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower. We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.

― William Wordsworth

I like this one a lot. So I wanted to share my thoughts on this particular quote by Wordsworth.

It is hard to lose something we have held dear to our heart for a very long time. What remains behind in my view is the fond memory of a thing, an event. That is what writers do best, they take a lifetime to learn from it and then they express it in writing in one form or another, perhaps a short or a long novel or a brief post on a writing site. I have known loss and have felt the pain. But the words from William Wordsworth ring true and I hope you find it worth your time to read it.
