Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.
Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world - stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death - and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem nineteen hundred years ago is the image and brightness of the Eternal Love? Then you can keep Christmas.
Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live.
