Thought for Today - After the Storm
"I don't understand anything. Life is so strange. I feel like someone who's lived all his life by a duck-pond and suddenly is shown the sea. It makes me a little breathless, yet it fills me with elation. I don't want to die. I want to live. I'm beginning to feel a new courage. I feel like one of those old sailors who set sail for undiscovered seas and I think my soul hankers for the unknown." - from The Painted Veil, Somerset Maugham.
