A Giant Voice Stilled

A Giant Voice Stilled

Gabriel Garcia Marquez passed from life during this past week. He was an author of remarkable talent. This quote means a lot to me as age creeps up and some dreams seem dimmer. “It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old. They grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.” Would that aging might be as William Wordsworth so poignantly put it: “O Man! that from thy fair and shining youth Age might but take the things Youth needed not!” from “The Small Celadine”, 1807 We all need dreams to keep us in pursuit of the force of life itself. When we quit dreaming, we wither and fade away. Thank you Marquez and Wordsworth for your insights. May you always be remembered.
