Quote of the Week

"There" is no better than "here." When your "there" has become a "here," you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."

Last week's quote brought to mind this one from the Chicken Soup for the Soul story, Rules for Being Human by Cherie Carter-Scott.

I read this to my husband and said I thought it was a lot like the grass always being greener on the other side of the fence. His take on this is that everything that makes us who we are goes with us so that when we are finally on the other side of the fence and look back, the side from where we came is the one that looks greener now. So the green-ness of anywhere is dependent more on us than the place itself. 

Just a little food for thought to twist your head around on a Monday morning. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

  1. Wow, this hit me hard!
    Being that we just moved, I'm a bit homesick. Make that, really homesick!
    I was doubting our move and then I read this post.
    I'm going to keep repeating the first sentence of your quote, "There" is no better than "here."

    1. Christine, sorry for bringing your homesickness to the focal front. From your pictures and posts you have a lovely location, and I'm sure it was thoughtfully chosen. I suspect that it will soon feel like home.

  2. Okay, maybe it's because it's late, but my mind is spinning with the quote. I like the play on the letters...take away the "t" and you're here:~)

    1. Sorry Sara, this went into moderation and I just saw it. It is a great play on the two words and is mind-spinning in its depth, but there is a lot of truth in those simple words.
