"Life is often compared to a roller coaster, but I find the Ferris wheel more metaphorically appropriate. On it, we still go high and low; but the pace is more relaxed because there isn't a point in going nowhere fast. It's enjoyable ride because sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll even […]"

On it, we still go high and low; but the pace is more relaxed because there isn't a point in going nowhere fast. It's enjoyable ride because sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll even stop at the top."

"Love is the most great law that ruleth this mighty and heavenly cycle, the unique power that bindeth together the divers elements of this material world, the supreme magnetic force that directeth the movements of the spheres in the celestial realms

We declare that love is the cause of the existence of all phenomena and that the absence of love is the cause of disintegration or non-existence.

Love is the spirit of life unto the adorned body of mankind, the establisher of true civilization in this mortal world, and the shedder of imperishable glory upon every high-aiming race and nation."

"Maybe my expectations of my fellows have been reduced to so base a level that the smallest kindness overwhelms me... I am amazed when I drop a glove in the street and a teenager runs two blocks to return it. I am amazed when a checkout girl flashes me a wide smile with my change, though my own face had been a mask of expedience. Lost wallets posted to their owners, strangers who furnish meticulous directions, neighbors who water each other's houseplants -- these things amaze me."

"“In the name of the best within you, do not sacrifice this world to those who are at its worst. In the name of the values that keep you alive, do not let your vision of people be distorted by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved integrity. Do not lose your knowledge that our proper estate is an upright posture,
an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it's yours.”"
