Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself.
Walter Anderson

The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.

Eleanor Roosevelt

People who have given us their complete confidence believe that they have a right to ours. The inference is false, a gift confers no rights.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Music is the art of the prophets and the gift of God.
Martin Luther

Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.
Richard Bach

You take away all the other luxuries in life, and if you can make someone smile and laugh, you have given the most special gift: happiness.

While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die - whether it is our spirit, our creativity or our glorious uniqueness.
Gilda Radner

Good morning, Don
From the first to the last they are all wonderful! No favorite there.
Hope you had a bit of rest and the shaking has stopped.

Don, thank you for these meaningful quotes. Each one could be a sermon--I think I've written that before! But, they're especially helpful to me, this morning, b/c I didn't get to church (early service) and they are my sermons.

The reason I didn't make it to church was b/c the rain was pelting, the winds were fierce, and I wasn't going to get on the interstate. Now, the temp is dropping and it's turning to snow. Of course, all that is 'small potatoes' compared to what your area is experiencing. Stay as safe as possible; you are in my thoughts.
