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
"It is in solitude that we discover that being is more important than having and that we are worth more than the results of our efforts. In solitude we discover that our life is not a possession to be defended but a gift to be shared."
— Henri Nouwen, Dutch-born Catholic priest, born January 24, 1932
