Dr. Seuss

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Strong people make as many mistakes as weak people. The difference is that strong people admit their mistakes, laugh at them, and learn from them. That is how they become strong.”
Richard Needham
