Response 2, Week 8.
These are some wonderfully thought provoking quotes. I especially like the one by Tee Tee. The heart is such a guiding force in our lives, it takes and gives indiscriminately and sometimes a great deal of suffering comes with our human desires. The quote does a great job a explaining the very complex issue of want vs. need, meaning often our wants come from the heart, where as our needs spring from the mind. The Rosten quote is also powerful and speaks to the importance of denying happiness for the greater good. Sometimes the more important think is the harder thing. Like the quote, 'I didn't say it was going to be easy, but its going to be worth it.'
