Isn't this interesting?
Searching through the bookshelves this week, I came upon a book I scarcely remember reading but examining it, I saw that I had turned down the opening page containing a quote from author, Anthony Powell, Books Do Furnish a Room. That is the quote I've found interesting enough to post this evening. The quote is -
"The General, speaking one felt with authority, always insisted that, if you bring off adequate preservation of your personal myth, nothing much else in life matters. It is not what happens to people that is significant, but what they think happens to them."
I'm mulling over what "my personal myth" is......do you think you have a personal myth?
