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
"She begins, “What is the question we spend our entire lives asking?” and answers, “Our question is this: Are we loved? I don’t mean by one another.” She closes her sermon to the snakes with these words: “I am like you, curious and small. Like you, I pause alertly and open my senses to try to read the air, the clouds, the sun’s slant, the little movements of the animals, all in the hope I will learn the secret of whether I am loved."
— Pat Schneider, American poet, born June 1, 1934
