“There is a hopeless longing for nostalgia that pervades the human soul, a return to the warm glow of remembrance or some imagined past.”
Deborah L. Norris, The House Guest: Pathway to Persuasion

“Innumerable victories are silently celebrated each day by those who maintain their courage.”
Deborah L. Norris

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting — a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
