All things whatsoever God in his infinite wisdom has seen fit and proper to reveal to us, while we are dwelling in mortality, in regard to our mortal bodies, are revealed to us in the abstract... revealed to our spirits precisely as though we had no bodies at all; and those revelations which will save our spirits will save our bodies. (TPJS) The voice of the Spirit is described in the scriptures as being "neither loud, nor harsh" (3Nephi) "It is not a voice of thunder, neither was it a voice of great tumultuous noise," but rather, " still and small, of perfect mildness, as if it had been a whisper," and it can, " pierce even to the very soul." (Helaman5:30) and cause the heart to burn." Remember Elijah found the voice of the Lord was not in the wind, nor the earthquake, nor the fire, but was a still small voice. (1Kings)
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
said Christopher Robin to Pooh. by A.A. Milne
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. ~Agatha Christie~
For nothing is fixed, forever and forever and forever, it is not fixed; the earth is always shifting, the light is always changing, the sea does not cease to grind down rock. Generations do not cease to be born, and we are responsible to them because we are the only witnesses they have. The sea rises, the light fails, lovers cling to each other, and children cling to us. The moment we cease to hold each other, the moment we break faith with one another, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out. ~James Baldwin~

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead. Today and tomorrow are yet to be said. The chances, the changes are all yours to make. The mold of your life is in your hands to break.
— J.R.R. Tolkien (The Hobbit: Or There and Back Again
Adventure is a path. Real adventure -self-determined,
self-motivated, often risky-forces you to have firsthand
encounters with the world. The world is the way it is,
not the way you imagine it.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo Picasso~
Only as high as I reach can I grow Only as far as I seek can I go Only as deep as I look can I see Only as much as I dream can I be ~Karen Ravn~
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. ~Walt Disney~
"Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead" ~Louisa May Alcott~
