When things go wrong as they should'nt
when life seems difficult to sail in rough weather
when everything seems so bleak and thinner
when you feel you can go no further
think of and keep faith on the one in the altar
who is here to see you through thick and thin.
For he who created the night
ensured sunshine is not far away.

Gratitude is the mother of all virtues

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that
the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.
- John F Kennedy

I would maintain that thanks are

the highest form of thought and
that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
- G K Chesterton

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant,

to enact gratitude is generous and noble,
but to live gratitude is to touch heaven.
- Johannes A Gaertner

Gratitude is our most direct line to God and the angels.

If we take the time,
no matter how crazy and troubled we feel,
we can find something to be thankful for.
The more we seek gratitude, the more reason the angels
will give us for gratitude and joy to exist in our lives.
- Terry Lynn Taylor

Not what we say about our blessings,

but how we use them,
is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
- W T Purkiser

In our daily lives,

we must see that
it is not happiness that makes us grateful,
but the gratefulness that makes us happy.
- Albert Clarke

If you want something you never had,
do something you have never done.

Don't go the way life takes you.
Take the life the way you go ...
And remember you are born to live
and not living because you are born.

However rich in terms of money
a man in this earth happens to be
the oxygen that he needs to breathe
is God's gift to him for free.

Before a dream is realized the soul of the world tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil but so that we can in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we have learnt as we move towards that dream. That is the point at which most people give up.

Language of the desert: People die of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.

From Paul Coelho's 'Alchemist'

On friendship

In this world filled with uncertainties,
one thing is certain and that is genuine friendship.
It is like a pearl, very hard to find.
But once found, treasure it for life
friendship is that treasure
that can never be equaled by any measure.
