Food for Thought

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."  Abraham Lincoln

"The words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels." Hazrat Inayat Khan
"Just because you are blind, and unable to see my beauty doesn't mean it does not exist." Margaret Cho
"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear." Mark Twain
