and that our greatest happiness will be
to become bigger, fatter, shinier acorns;
but that is of interest only to pigs.
Our faith gives us knowledge of something better:
that we can become oak trees.
- E. F. Schumacher

be forgiving of everyone and of every act
we believe has hurt us.

We get to CHOOSE our relationship with life.
