Quotable Monday: Joyce Carol Oates

Joyce Carol Oates as a young woman

We don’t always get to live the life that we once dreamt that we would.  Sometimes this elicits extreme anger, denial, sadness… but it doesn’t always have to be so.

With this in mind, today’s short and to-the-point quote comes to us from one of my personal favorites, Joyce Carol Oates:

What I aspired to be and was not, comforts me.
