Alfred Adler

The winds of grace blow all the time. All we need to do is set our sails.

Ramakrishna

Sunbeams

Joanna Rogers Macy

Sunbeams

Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.

Teilhard de Chardin

There is a great man who makes every man feel small. But the real great man is the man who makes every man feel great.

G.K. Chesterton

Sunbeams
