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
"Listening is much more than allowing another to talk while waiting for a chance to respond. Listening is paying full attention to others and welcoming them into our very beings. The beauty of listening is that those who are listened to start feeling accepted, start taking our words more seriously and discovering their true selves."
— Henri Nouwen, Dutch-born Catholic priest, born January 24, 1932
