Chapter 10, Page 6, Book 15

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.     

Carol Bishop Hipps

October 5th -  willing hearts are full of love

It's kind of bittersweet. The human spirit is not measured by the size of the act, but by the size of the heart.
Yakov Smirnoff

We all have bittersweet moments.  Times when joy and sorrow compete with one another to make up the hours and the days.  One moment we are abundantly happy and the next we’re saddened.  

When we talk about a willing heart, we are basically talking about feeling that there is something we want. Without wanting to do it we will never do anything.  Wanting to do something is a powerful thing. With it you can lose weight, keep your house clean, save money, get out of debt, or reach any other goal in life you may have set for yourself. 

Life at best is bittersweet.

Jack Kirby

We do some things because we need to do them, but it is the things we want to do that we enjoy and feel fulfillment in.  The difference in in wanting to and needing to is like that bittersweet moment.

Memories, even bittersweet ones, are better than nothing.

Jennifer Armentrout

That is true about that last quote, even bittersweet memories are better than no memories. I have bittersweet mornings some days; know I need to go to work to get the money I want from it :)
