“Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.”

“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”
Image

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

“It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.”
Image

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

Elected Silence, sing to me
And beat upon my whorled ear,
Pipe me to pastures still, and be
The music that I care to hear.

Gerard Manley Hopkins.

Today is Easter Sunday.

From the Easter vigil liturgy:

Rejoice, O Earth in shining splendor

......

Darkness vanishes forever.
