More about Elbert
I got sidetracked with my last blog. I started out intending to share with you a quote I’d seen that sorta stopped me in my tracks. But first I was curious about its origin and that search led me to Elbert Hubbard. Then I got all emotional about his death and love and love and death on the RMS Lusitania and if you read that blog you know why and I had to share that story with you first.
But now here’s the quote, and it has nothing to do with sinking ships or maybe it does. In any case, I really hope I tracked it correctly because I’d like to credit the right guy for articulating something so much better than I ever have.
Hubbard wrote, “We are not punished for our sins. We are punished by them.”
So simple, so profound.
