213 quotes from Anne Morrow Lindbergh: 'The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere. 'When you love someone, you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return.

I will need them all. ― Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Se. We run a tight rope daily, balancing a pile of books on the head.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Gift from the Sea is a timeless reflections on being a woman, wife, and mother and the most famous of all her books. In Gift from the Sea, she spends a few days away from her family in a beach house near the sea and this book is her musings on the different stages in the lives of women, with really beautiful thoughts about marriage, aging, mothering, solitude and happiness. It was so strange to read this book written so many decades ago and think, This is still unbelievably relevant. Comfortable and compact, it sits curled up like a cat in the hollow of my hand. Milky and opaque, it has the pinkish bloom of the sky on a summer evening, ripening to rain. On its smooth symmetrical. face is pencilled with precision a perfect spiral, winding inward to the pinpoint center of the shell, the tiny dark core of the apex, the pupil of the eye. It stares at me, this mysterious single eye-and I stare back. Now it is the moon, solitary in the sky, full and round, replete with power.

  • This is a FANTASTIC BOOK for ALL women of any age, but especially mothers and wives!! This book allows today's women to understand we are NOT alone and can actually relate to a long line of fellow mothers and wives (women of the 50's to the present), who have also struggled to maintain an open channel of spiritual and emotional guidance, while managing their personal relationships, home life, and careers!! The author is a breath of fresh air and a wonderful artist, as she paints an outlet through the visual gifts from the sea, that help to remind us to take time for ourselves and to remember how important WE are to the BIG picture! An EXCELLENT READ for ALL AGES!! A wonderful gift for a beautiful woman, a devoted mother, a daughter getting ready to cross over into the REAL world, or someone who is simply trying to find their way in this crazy, hectic world!!!

  • Cute book. Not what I was expecting and not something I'd have normally picked up to read.

    That being said ... something that I may read over and over again. Beautifully written and rhythmic without being poetic.

    Interesting how so much of it still resonates today ... 60 years later. And how much of it needs to be taught and reminded to girls and women of all ages. A book that transcends time.

    "each cycle of the tide is valid, each cycle of the wave is valid, each cycle of a relationship is valid"

    "She must learn not to depend on another, not to feel she must prove her strength by competing with another ... She must find the true center alone. She just become whole."

  • I first read 'Gift from the Sea' decades ago when I was in my 20's and loved it then. However, I just completed it again and identified so much more with Anne Morrow Lindbergh's life insights as she spends time alone in a small cottage on Captiva Island Florida. Like the author I am now at a time in my life where I have been married for a long time and my child is grown and I can appreciate her questioning the value of relationships, obligations and how we spend our time on too many things that do not align with our search for meaning in our lives. Mrs. Lindbergh wrote this book in 1955 but it is just as relevant today, even more so as we are inundated with the distractions of technology and social media infringing on the privacy of our lives and solitude becomes a rare and valuable commodity. Anne Lindbergh's gift is showing us a way back to ourselves, a breath of fresh air offering space within the busyness of our lives.

  • Use of the word 'love' as a # 5 rating does not fit my philosophical use of the word. I hope no regrets here. As for the book by Anne, this is one of the most powerful and important books I have ever read and I recommend it to everyone. I used this wonderful lady's writings in my profession over some 60 years and cherish what she writes for us all. To anyone, regardless of age, sex, race, education, etc. I heartily and totally recommend reading.

  • Thoughtful observations directed toward women about phases of life. Written beautifully with a gentle tone, these are thoughts and self reflections observed in solitude while she vacationed for a week by the undulating sea. Written decades ago, but so quotidian and profound, the truths are just as relevant today. This is a book I could read over and over, but I don't think I would have really embraced it if I'd read it earlier in life. It requires a thought and focus I wouldn't have given it until my 40s or 50s. A classic, yet a well-kept secret. I'd never heard of until recently.

  • Wow. This book was given to me as a gift from my aunt, who received her first copy 25 years earlier, with the 25th Anniversary Edition. What a blessing! The author word's are as relevant to women today, as they were 50 years ago. After finishing the book, I immediately purchased two more to give as gifts.

  • Written in 1955, with an addendum in 1973, I can see why this book sold so well, and why it remains so popular. It's the kind of contemplative book everyone wishes they could write, and to say this book is prescient would be an understatement. From the Wikipedia post, this says it well: Lindbergh wrote this essay-style work taking shells on the beach for inspiration, and reflecting on the lives of Americans, particularly American women, in the mid-twentieth century. She shares her meditations on youth and age; love and marriage; peace, solitude and contentment during her visit. Sometimes classified as inspirational literature, the book presages many of the themes in that genre of popular literature: simplicity, solitude and caring for the soul.

    Gift from the Sea is a pretty quick read, but well worth the price of admission. The target audience was clearly women, but it's a book for men as well, and what really stands out is how prescient this book was, and how relevant the book remains over 60 years after it was written. A big thumbs up for an interesting and quick read.

  • Gift from the Sea resonated with me to a magnitude I did not expect. While some of the troubles of a housewife feel a bit dated, the struggle to find happiness, meaning, and balance ring true today for women, but also for men.

    I hope these invigorating chapters give me motivation to spend more time looking inwards for happiness, and to dedicate more time to myself.
