I’m a fan of quotes. I’m always searching for those that sum up the human condition for me. I have many books of quotes in my library (paperbacks and ebooks) and I like to start my week out with one that exhibits how I’m feeling at that moment, so I thought I’d share them here on my blog too.

Today’s quote I selected is by Nadine Gordimer. She’s a writer and political activist from South Africa. Currently, she’s moved from her main cause of addressing apartheid to becoming active in HIV/AIDS causes. She’s 87 years old.

“Writing is making sense of life. You work your whole life and perhaps you’ve made sense of one small area.” – Nadine Gordimer
