“One shining, incalculable asset remained;;the tight, warm friendship of men together in misfortune.   While we remained together hope could not be quenched.  The whole, in terms of spirit and resolution, was greater than the sum of its parts.”  –Slavomir Rawicz

The Beginning of Fall

“I’ve seen most of what
there is to be afraid of in this world, and to tell you the truth,
the worst of them are the ones that make you afraid in the
light. The things that your eyes see plainly and can’t forget
are worse than huddled black figures left to the imagination.
Imagination has a poor memory; it slinks away and goes
blurry. Eyes remember for much longer.”
― Kendare Blake

"There are all sorts of experiences we can’t really put a name to…The birth of a child, for one. Or the death of a parent. Falling in love. Words are like nets–we hope they’ll cover what we mean, but we know they can’t possibly hold that much joy, grief, or wonder. Finding God is like that, too. If it’s happened to you, you know what it feels like. But try to describe it to someone else–and language only takes you so far."
— Jodi Picoult
