“Life Will Break You” Quote | Louise Erdrich

Apple Orchard

Was forum-surfing when I came across this beautiful quote  about life by author Louise Erdrich. Thought I’d share with my readers – it’s definitely going to be a great reminder for me.

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It’s the reason you are here on Earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or Death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
