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
"Life always gives exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor (or employee), every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every piece of garbage, every breath."
— Joko Beck, American Zen teacher, born March 27, 1917
