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
"One of the tasks of true friendship is to listen compassionately and creatively to the hidden silences. Often secrets are not revealed in words, they lie concealed in the silence between the words or in the depth of what is unsayable between two people."
— John O’Donohue, Irish poet, author, priest, and Hegelian philosopher, born January 1, 1956
