What We Need

“is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime” (speech given Aug. 27, 1952, quoted in John Bartlett, comp., Familiar Quotations, 13th ed. [1955], 986)

I just read this in an article that a friend linked to from her blog.
It got me thinking.
I think I'm (often) guilty of those 'short, frenzied outbursts of emotion' rather than 'the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.'
I need to work on that.

The article she linked to was this one.

I love this quote. I remember reading it years ago. Thanks for sharing! Don't we all struggle with that?!
