“It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision.”

“It is hard to interest those who have everything in those who have nothing.”

All time favorite quote…

Oh, the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”

-Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

Vision

A vision without a task is but a dream. A task without a vision is drudgery. A vision with a task is the hope of the world.
