“I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.”
Harold S. Kushner

“If you have been brave enough to love, and somtimes you won and sometimes you lost; if you have cared enough to try, and sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't; if you have been bold enough to dream and found yourself with some dreams that came true and a lot of broken pieces of dreams that didn't, that fell to earth and shattered,then you can look back from the mountaintop you now find yourself standing on, like Moses contemplating the tablets that would guide human behavior for a millenia, resting in the Ark alongside the broken fragments of an earlier dream. And you, like Moses, can realize how ful your life has been and how richly you are blessed. ”
Harold S. Kushner

“Forgiveness is a favor we do for ourselves, not a favor we do to the other party.”
Harold S. Kushner, Living a Life That Matters: Resolving the Conflict Between Conscience and Success
