It’s good to be just plain happy, it’s a little better to know that you are happy; but to understand that you are happy and to know why and how and still be happy, be happy in the being and the knowing, well that is beyond happiness, that is bliss.

If I have enjoyed the hospitality of the Host of this universe, Who daily spreads a table in my sight, surely I can not do less than acknowledge my dependence.

“Perhaps it will seem to you that the sunshine is brighter and that everything has a new charm. At least, I believe this is always the result of a deep love, and it is a beautiful thing. And I believe people who think love prevents one from thinking clearly are wrong ; for then one thinks very clearly and is more active than before. And love is something eternal – the aspect may change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlit lamp and one that is burning.”

~ Vincent van Gogh
