Norman Vincent Peale
This past year has been something else... it's opened my eyes to many things and many people. It's had its ups and downs and ins and outs.

Wonder knows that while you cannot look at the light, you cannot look at anything else without it. It is not exhausted by childhood, but finds its key there. It is a journey like a walk through the woods over the usual obstacles and around the common distractions while the voice of direction leads, saying, 'This is the way, walk ye in it.'
