The neurotic in me is convinced that  Tennessee Williams was referring to me when he said, “Oh, you weak, beautiful people who give up with such grace. What you need is someone to take hold of you — gently, with love, and hand your life back to you.” Linked to this I could not agree with Martin Luther more, “I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.”

“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don’t give up.” – Anne Lamott

“Never cease loving a person, and never give up hope for him, for even the prodigal son who had fallen most low, could still be saved; the bitterest enemy and also he who was your friend could again be your friend; love that has grown cold can kindle” – Soren Kierkergaard
