The Wave Cannot Exist For Itself


“Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me.”

—Albert Schweitzer

Very lovely! And I almost used this same quote today on my summer post! But I opted instead for Mother Teresa and Maya Angelou...you and I must have wise minds (you may have heard the saying that "wise minds run alike!")
