North Wind Speaks

This morning I surrendered my songwriting time to read to my daughter who is home sick from school. We finished George MacDonald’s At the Back of the North Wind, and I thought this statement from the character North Wind worth sharing:

Everything, dreaming and all, has got a soul in it, or else it’s worth nothing, and we don’t care a bit about it. Some of our thoughts are worth nothing, because they’ve got no soul in them. The brain puts them into the mind, not the mind into the brain.

At the Back of the North Wind is in the public domain and you can read or download it free at the following places:
