“This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.”
~ Taylor Caldwell (1900-1985), English novelist.
“The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing other’s loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.”
~ W. C.Jones
“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.”
~ Garrison Keillor (1942-), American author. ‘Exiles,’ Leaving Home (1987).
“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.”
~ Agnes M.Pahro
“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?”
