Quotations by Kathleen Norris

Before you begin a thing, remind yourself that difficulties and delays quite impossible to foresee are ahead…. You can only see one thing clearly and that is your goal. Form a mental vision of that and cling to it through thick and thin.

Friendship is an art, and very few persons are born with a natural gift for it.

Hate is all a lie, there is no truth in hate.

If ambition doesn’t hurt you, you haven’t got it.

It isn’t the things that happen to us, it’s the things we think are going to happen to us that drive us almost crazy.

Life is easier to take than you think; all that is necessary is to accept the impossible, do without the indispensable and bear the intolerable.

Never in the history of the big, round world has anything like us occurred.

None of us knows what the next change is going to be, what unexpected opportunity is just around the corner, waiting a few months or a few years to change all the tenor of our lives.

One may have been a fool, but there’s no foolishness like being bitter.

There is no solitude in the world like that of the big city.
