  • Leaning on the sustaining Infinite, to-day is big with blessings.

  • All the great blessings of my life / Are present in my thoughts to-day.

  • There is compensation in all things.

  • Blessings brighten as they take their flight.

  • Stretch out your hand! — let no human soul wait for a benediction.

  • An ancient principle reminds us to look for salvation in the darkest, most painful parts of our lives. We emerge into the light not by denying our pain, but by walking out through it. The common turn of phrase we apply to this wonderful action of grace is: 'that was a blessing in disguise.'

  • He who looks far for blessings / Will overlook his own.

  • If we neglect our privileges, the gods take them from us ...

  • Anyone can ... bless, whether anyone has authorized you to do it or not. All I am saying is that the world needs you to do this, because there is a real shortage of people willing to kneel wherever they are and recognize the holiness holding its sometimes bony, often tender, always life-giving hand above their heads. That we are able to bless one another at all is evidence that we have been blessed, whether we can remember when or not. That we are willing to bless one another is miracle enough to stagger the very stars.

  • To take for granted one's blessings is a damage to the soul, and in time one will lose them, simply from lack of care. One should never tire of nourishing and treasuring all that is lovely.
