There are only two ways to live your life. As though everything is a miracle and as if nothing is a miracle. Albert Einstein Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve.

They presented him the words: "And this, too, shall pass away." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!"
