Not this Way

'No one heals himself by wounding another.'

St. Ambrose of Milan

Painting:  Agghazy Gyula, To be Angry with You


  1. Nancy,

    This is so true but we do tend to lash out at others when we are hurting. Maybe we want others to share in our pain, know what it feels like, so we don't feel alone with the hurt. I don't know. The sad part is we choose to inflict that pain usually on those we love and who want to help us. Now this tiny quote has set me thinking. My thought for the day? Thank you!

  2. Yes, I agree with Sue. How many times our reflex is to strike back. What fear at the root of choosing not to love. Will also be thinking on this...Thank you Nancy! Perfect painting for the quotation..God Bless.

  3. Or, as they say in AA, Hurt People hurt people. How true!

  4. Thanks so much, everyone! "Hurt people hurt people".... wow, how true.
