Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Melody Beattie

is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

When one gets angry, it is always angry AT someone -
perhaps a friend or spouse, perhaps a stranger,

they want to find someone to be "responsible" for what happened.

Our world has gotten too small for us to be anything else.
We can no longer have "us" and "them" - friends and enemies.

no more a stranger or enemy than a person from across town.
A few people everywhere are troublemakers.
Every religion provokes a few people to become extremists.

Do we need war? Does that question even deserve an answer?

Laws are sand, customs are rock.
Laws can be evaded and punishment escaped,
but an openly transgressed custom brings sure punishment.
The penalty may be unfair, unrighteous, illogical, and a cruelty;
no matter, it will be inflicted, just the same.
Certainly, then, there can be but one wise thing
for a visiting stranger to do -
find out what the country's customs are,
and refrain from offending against them.
- Mark Twain

I leave no trace of wings in the air,
