A great thing is love...

"A great thing is love--a great good in every way: which alone lightens all that is burdensome, and bears equally all that is unequal. For it carries a burden without being burdened, and makes all else that is bitter sweet and savory."

--from The Following of Christ

Hidden paths...

"Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though I've often passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun."
--J. R. R. Tolkien
