In Difficult Times

“Everything that happens
and everything that befalls us has a meaning,
But it is often difficult to recognize it.
Also in the book of life every page has two sides:
We human beings fill the upper side with our plans, hopes, and wishes,
But Providence writes on the other side,
And what it ordains is seldom our goal.”
Nisami, 12th Century Persian Poet

May you find strength in the events of your life, even when their meaning is unclear.

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
Dr. Martin Luther King

May you hold on firmly to your faith that tomorrow will be better.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
Albert Camus

May you find your own invincible summer.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
Helen Keller

May you remember that you are not alone…and never will be.

A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.”
The Wizard of Oz

May you always know in your heart how much you are loved.
