August 2005 Passage of the Month

By Sue Monk Kidd, The Mermaid Chair, p. 304

"[T]here's release in knowing the truth no matter how anguishing it is. You come finally to the irreducible thing and there's nothing left to do but pick it up and hold it. Then, at least, you can enter the severe mercy of acceptance."
