OK, here's a new topic/category to take on: Quotations!

There are so many and so many are - actually - inspiring. Please send along or comment on this thread if you have any particular favorites that you'd like to share - I guess restricted to somewhat life affirming and uplifting topics that you think might be, well, affirming and uplifting to someone in m position.

So here's the first one, attributed to Martin Luther King Jr., (though my limited Internet serches can't reliably attribute this to Dr King; anyway it is a cool image that I have to come to grips with somehow anyway:

"Like a traveler on a train we can put down our bags. We can relax our grip and trust in the unfolding of life. Do not worry. There is a web of life into which we are born, from which we can never fall. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny."

Martin Luther King Jr. (alleged)

  2. Here's one I like:

    "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

    I don't know who said it.
