Quote from a Lousia May Alcott book
"...it is the small temptations which undermine integrity, unless we watch and pray, and never think them too trivial to be resisted."
Mother Theresa "By praying. If you want to pray better, you much pray more."
"Hope is definitely not the same as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense regardless of how it turns out."
Vaclav Havel ( I don't know who he is but I liked the quote.)
