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
"Ramakrishna once said that if all you think of are your sins, then you are a sinner. And when I read that, I thought of my boyhood, going to confession on Saturdays, meditating on all the little sins that I had committed during the week. Now I think one should go and say, ”Bless me, Father, for I have been great, these are the good things I have done this week.“ Identify your notion of yourself with the positive, rather than with the negative."
— Joseph Campbell, American mythologist, writer and lecturer, born March 26, 1904
