Poppets, if you are European this is a terribly late post for Sunday, but I have been out all day at Mass and then socializing with Singles both Serious and, er, somewhat stuck.
So instead of writing a long post, here are four quotes for you to ponder. Three are from Susan Annette Muto, whose book really is good, even if you don't agree with everything (as I don't), and one is by Blaise Paschal, found also in Celebrating the Single Life:
"Loneliness slowly turns into solitude when I recommit myself to the Lord and enjoy his company."
There are two "either/or extremes that often tempt singles: either too much withdrawal or too much involvement."
"There is a reason for one's being single. The challenge of a lifetime is to discover what that is."
--Susan Annette Muto
"The sole cause of man's unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room."
