Who you are...

...when what you want isn't where you are.

I read a great quotation from a friend yesterday: "...we are measured by what discourages us." Apparently it is from Bill Wilson, whoever that is. Very inspiring and challenging thought.

My own way of saying the same kind of thing is this: "Our love is the index of our dignity and our suffering is the index of our love."
