‘Then there are the seasons of the body. Sooner or later, something will happen to me – an accident, sickness or disease will unfold, or I will just become weaker, slower and unable to read or write, unable to give talks.
To tell you the truth, I do not ponder too much on tomorrow. Live today well. Each season has its beauty. I have the strength for today and hopefuly too for tomorrow. Why waste time worrying or even questioning? Write me a letter when I am 86 – I’ll tell you then what I feel!’–Jean Vanier, “The Globe and Mail,” March 7, 2009
