God does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illumined by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason.

Now, when I have overcome my fears – of others, of myself, of the underlying darkness: at the frontier of the unheard-of.  Here ends the known.  But, from a source beyond it, something fills my being with its possibilities.
Here desire is purified and made lucid: each action is a preparation for, each choice an assent to the unknown.  Prevented by the duties of life on the surface from looking down into the depths, yet all the while being slowly trained and molded by them to take the plunge into the deep whence rises the fragrance of a forest star, bearing the promise of a new affection at the frontier.

An apology is a friendship preserver,
an antidote for hatred,
never a sign of weakness;
It costs nothing but one’s pride,
always saves more than it costs,
and is a device needed in every home.
