Gratitude is the memory of the heart; therefore forget not to say often, I have all I ever enjoyed.
Lydia M. Child
For the Lord will not cast off for ever: But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
The King James Version
Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the promised land. She prepares a world she will not see.
Pope Paul VI
