Sunday Dinner: Shining

“The world is indeed full of peril,
and in it there are many dark places;
but still there is much that is fair,
and though in all lands love
is now mingled with grief,
it grows perhaps the greater.”
.
J.R.R. Tolkien

“Hope can be a powerful force.
Maybe there’s no actual magic in it,
but when you know what you hope
for most and hold it like a light within you,
you can make things happen, almost like magic.”

Children already know that dragons exist.
Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”

“The best way to not feel hopeless
is to get up and do something.
Don’t wait for good things to happen to you.
If you go out and make some good things happen,
you will fill the world with hope,
you will fill yourself with hope.”
.

  1. My favorite quote on this post… and I liked it even more when I read who said it… I miss wisdom.

    “The best way to not feel hopeless
    is to get up and do something.
    Don’t wait for good things to happen to you.
    If you go out and make some good things happen,
    you will fill the world with hope,
    you will fill yourself with hope.”

    Barack Obama

    • And I’m so grateful that a huge percentage of our country is following that advice! I immediately thought of LeBron James when I found that quote, and so many others going out of their way and out of their comfort zone to ‘make good things happen.’ It is always wonderful to hear from you, Jane ❤ ❤ ❤
