I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino
"Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final. Don’t let yourself lose me. Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand."
— Elizabeth Alexander, American poet, born May 30, 1962
