Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.
E. Joseph Cossman
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
A true friend is someone who is there for you - when he'd rather be anywhere else.

Historically, we're not allowed to have more than one migrant issue each session. So overall, we've done very well.
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.
