- Walt Whitman
It’s not a matter of letting go—you would if you could. Instead of “Let it go,” we should probably say “Let it be.”
“When I dance, I dance; when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and when I walk alone in a beautiful orchard, if my thoughts drift to far-off matters for some part of the time for some other part I lead them back again to the walk, the orchard, to the sweetness of this solitude, to myself.”
― Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592)
The ocean of suffering is immense, but if you turn around, you can see the land.
