Meandering in silence . . .

Today is the birthday of Karen Blixen (April 17, 1885 – September 7, 1962), author. She is best known by her pen name Isak Dinesen, author of Out of Africa and Babette's Feast.

"God made the world round so we would never be able to see too far down the road." - Isak Dinesen

"Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever." - Isak Dinesen

"When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself." - Isak Dinesen

"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea." - Isak Dinesen

"Who tells a finer tale than any of us. Silence does." - Isak Dinesen
