Colleen McCullough Quotes

Each of us has something within us which wont be denied, even if it makes us scream aloud to die. We are what we are, thats all. Like the old Celtic legend of the bird with the thorn in its breast, singing its heart out and dying. Because it has to, its self-knowledge cant affect or change the outcome, can it? Everyone singing his own little song, convinced its the most wonderful song the world has ever heard. Dont you see? We create our own thorns, and never stop to count the cost. All we can do is suffer the pain, and tell ourselves it was well worth it.
