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
"Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it."
— Rainer Maria Rilke, Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist, born December 4, 1875
