Henri J. M. Nouwen Quote – “The great challenge is living your wounds…”

The great challenge is living your wounds through instead of thinking them through. It is better to cry than to worry, better to feel your wounds deeply than to try to understand them, better to let them enter into your silence than to talk about them. The choice you face constantly is whether you are taking your hurts to your head or to your heart.

Henri J. M. Nouwen (1932 – 1996)
