Can you help me find this quote?

Asked by Supacase (14483 points ) July 24th, 2012

I saw this on a statue at the NC Zoo and should have written it down. It is very short and says something about how the harder life is the more meaningful it is. Or the more we fight to live it. I think it is by Ann someone? I know the first name starts with an A. Helpful, huh? (I knew I should have written it down.)

It reminded me of a friend with a shitty childhood who overcame so many things through sheer determination and now lives a full, meaningful, joyful life. Still with the ups and downs, but she lives her life. It doesn’t pass her by.

This is the only thing I found, and I don’t think it’s what you’re looking for:

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. ~Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Maybe call the NC Zoo and ask them?

It sounds like the kind of thing that Anne Morrow Lindbergh might have said; I’ve seen a lot of quotes from her in that sort of vein, but nothing that really seems to hit the mark you’ve painted.
