There are usually worse things happening to better people.
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
"Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world."
"To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour."
