When asked, "Do you believe in miracles?" a person of faith replied, "I believe in God.  It is the atheist who must believe in miracles."

You can wait for a miracle, but a better strategy is to meet it halfway.

Do things while you can and while they matter to you, because neither is a permanent state of affairs.

In an age when manners and civility have gone the way of dressing for dinner, you begin to understand why people dressed for dinner.
