In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.

Albert Schweitzer

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing... not healing, not curing... that is a friend who cares.

Henri Nouwen

Two wonderful quotes,Don. I was with a person like that yesterday and every time I'm with her I come away feeling good and hopefully vice versa.

Nice quotes, Don. Sometimes, only the pilot fire is burning, and it needs a kicker to get it going.
