The Darker the Night

“The darker the night, the brighter the stars…” (full quote)

3 Men

It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it.
Arnold Toynbee

If that is the case, then I request of the universe: three men.

Maybe now I’ll get one?

I recognize that is not the significance of this quote, but how could I resist?

Pain and Friends

I got this quote from an older gentleman, and at one level, it seems like a cheap quote. But the beating heart of it is so good.

“A trouble shared is but half a care, a joy shared is a joy doubled.”

As I’ve navigated pain, this gentlemen, and his wife (both in pain), have loved me. So his words and ideas mean a lot! Even the cheap quotes, soaked in truth.
