Open window

The years, the months, the days, and the hours have flown by my open window. Here and there an incident, a towering moment, a naked memory, an etched countenance, a whisper in the dark, a golden glow these and much more are the woven fabric of the time I have lived. What I have written is but a fleeting intimation of the outside of what one man sees and may tell about the path he walks. No one shares the secret of a life; no one enters into the heart of the mystery. There are telltale signs that mark the passing of one's appointed days. Always we are on the outside of our story, always we are beggars who seek entrance to the kingdom of our dwelling place. 

~ Howard  Thurman


  1. This is one of my favorite quotes for "With Head and Heart: The Autobiography of Howard Thurman". Excellent choice. As a note, his name is Howard Thurman not Harold Thurman.

    1. Glad you spotted the mistake and let me know. Changed it.
      I love the quote too. :)
