"Even when it isnt going well, knitting can be deeply spiritual. Knitting sets goals that you can meet.

I just stare at him. I dont like knitting. I LOVE knitting. I dont know what could have possible led him to think that Im not enjoying myself. The cursing? The crying? The forteen sheets of shredded graph paper? Knittong is like a marriage (I tell him) and you dont just trash the whole thing because there are bad moments." - Author: Stephanie Pearl McPhee

A man who has learned how to die has unlearned how to be a slave." - Author: Michel de Montaigne
