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
"A young couple is led to imagine that marriage is a box full of goodies, that they can sit down and eat out of this box all their lives, and it will never be empty. But it is empty. There will never be anything in it unless the partners put it there. And if they do not want it to be empty, they must put in a lot more than they are in the habit of taking out. But the young romantic who imagined it ought to be endlessly full of goodies, institutes a lawsuit against God and the marriage partner as soon as he discovers the score of the game. He feels swindled, but he imagines the next box he buys will be full even though the first one was empty."
