The purpose of Mr. Dickie's Blog is to provide a place where I can post quotations I like and write about things that are on my mind. As of the summer of 2011 I have NetworkedBlogs posting a link to this blog to Facebook.
As long as suffering is hard for you and you seek to avoid it, all will go wrong with you, and the very trouble that you run from will hound you wherever you go. If you resign yourself to what must be - that is, that we all must suffer and die -- you will feel much better, and you will find peace.
(Thomas 'a Kempis, The Imitation Of Christ, Book 2, Chapter 12)
