“Even when life challenges us,
it is a gift beyond measure.”   
- Parker Palmer

"But, soft, behold, lo, where it comes again!
I'll cross it though it blast me, -- Stay, illusion!
If thou hast any sound or use of voice,
Speak to me!"
- Hamlet Act 1.1.128-131

"Hester," said he, "come hither! Come, my little Pearl!"
..."Is this not better, " murmured he, then what we dreamed of in the forest?"

- The Scarlet Letter (chapter 23)
