Thoughts on Adversity: "“Someone once said, I forget who, ‘In October, when the leaves fall, you can see deeper into the forest.’ It’s true. So much foliage had fallen from my branching ambitions, and as a result, I could see deeper into the forest that was my life.” (78)
‘Trees need the winter. I never knew that before. They need time to strengthen for the growth they experience in springtime. All that green, pulpy growth has to harden, or the tree would not be able to withstand the seasonal winds that whip against it.” (78-79)"
