Today’s news of Ursula K. Le Guin’s passing hits hard. With wistful gratitude I recall how her words touched me over the years. Like a mushroom hunter I head to the woods of the Internet in search of juicy quotes, returning with a full basket. Many of these are from https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/874602.Ursula_K_Le_Guin.
“It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end.”
“Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new.”
“It’s a rare gift, to know where you need to be, before you’ve been to all the places you don’t need to be.”
“We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.”
