James E. Faust

D. H. Lawrence
Dom DeLuise was a big man in every way. He was big in size and created big laughter and joy.

This is part of the involuntary bargain we make with the world just by being alive. We get to experiences the splendor of nature, the beauty of art, the balm of love and the sheer joy of existence, always with the knowledge that illness, injury, natural disaster, or pure evil can end it in an instant for ourselves or someone we love.

Love begets love. This torment is my joy.
Music was my joy, my home, the one place I felt happy and secure.
