Not the form we expect

All life worth living is difficult, nobody promised us happiness;

it is not a commodity you have earned, or shall ever earn.

It is a by-product of brave living, and it never comes in the form we expect, or at the season we hoped for, or as the result of our planning for it.

Katherine Anne Porter  1890 –  1980, American journalist, short story writer, novelist, and political activist.
