Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function.
-- Garrison Keillor
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything but they make the most of everything.
-- Sam Cawthorn
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
