Impressive Lines from “The Blue Sweater”

Standard

I am half-way through Jacqueline Novogratz’ book “The Blue Sweater”.

Full of captivating and poignant stories.

Here are a few lines, from the book, that have created a strong impression on me.

“Sometimes you have to be a fool, or else your heart can turn to stone.” [Chapter 4]

“..if you move through the world with both intellect and compassion, then you have wisdom.” [Chapter 8]

“If you want to remain happy and alive in this work, you need to reconcile this part of who you are and understand the inconsistencies with the work you do and how it all fits into your whole way of being.” [Chapter 7]
