Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished. If you’re alive, it isn’t.
Richard Bach, b. 1936
When our friend Mary Ross sent me this quote, I was taken back to 2002 at the memorial service for Hannah’s brother Doug. On that Saturday in early February I was one of eleven who spoke from the pulpit of the Park Presbyterian Church in Newark, New York. I quoted this very line from Richard Bach to celebrate Doug’s life well-lived.
You and I, our missions are not done.
After Mary reminded me of this quote, I reread Illusions (it’s short, an easy read). Two other quotes struck me.
There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands.
You seek problems because you need their gifts.
