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
"If we are to love our neighbors, before doing anything else we must see our neighbors. With our imagination as well as our eyes, that is to say like artists, we must see not just their faces, but the life behind and within their faces. Love is the frame we see them in."
— Frederick Buechner, American theologian, born July 11, 1926
