I did find the quote, but not the author. Someone, me, posted the quote on a blog post. The blog? The Adventures of Homeless Girl. My comment was posted in 2009. I wondered if the girl was still homeless. She did post in April 2011. Her post from February 2011 says:
Death is inevitable, death comes for us whether we like it or not. Others make smart choices or are lucky to live for a long time whilst for others it comes sooner. We have found ways to manage it, treat it, not talk about it but we all know it is there.
Homelessness is the same thing.
I wonder if it is inevitable that when I go searching for author of a quote, I will be lead right back to me?
