Petit Elefant Quote of the Week

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend.  We’re starting out a new week with a new quote, this week from beloved Emily Dickinson.  A little encouragement and love spread out in the world is never a bad thing, and life’s purpose doesn’t always have to be grand.

But Emily said it best.

Petit Elefant Quote of the Week

If I can stop one heart

from breaking

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life

the aching,

or cool one pain,

or help one fainting robin

unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

– Emily Dickinson –
