This is the quote from “THE BOOK THIEF” that always remains in my heart. Some of us live longer, some shorter; but in the end – we all have to go.  Nobody lives forever.

We play little games with ourselves don’t we? Don’t we?  Our house is not ‘clean enough’ for anyone to visit.  The living room is filled with toys, so we can’t go.  And so it goes for a person that has lost all sense of self even though she has raised three self-sufficient adults with the highest of education in their fields.

But I did not get through ‘higher education’ so I am the one that sucks.  But only in m own eyes.  No one else sees me that way.  What a loser am I?
