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
"There are ten strong things in the world, say the rabbis: rock is strong but iron cleaves it; fire melts iron; water extinguishes fire; the clouds bear aloft the water; the wind drives away the clouds; man withstands the wind; fear unmans man; wine dispels fear; sleep overcomes wine; and death sweeps away even sleep. But strongest of all is loving kindness, for it defies and survives death."
