If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.  ~ Mother Teresa


There are two kinds of light – the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures.  ~ James Thurber



I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter.  Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.  ~ Andrew Wyeth


Christmas is a necessity.  There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.  ~ Eric Sevareid
