In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.
For a thought to change the world, it must first change the life of the one who carries it.
—- Albert Camus
When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him. In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
Every minute of life carries with it its miraculous value,
and its face of eternal youth.
Real generosity to the future lies in giving all to the present.
Autumn is a second Spring, when every leaf is a flower.
And so it has been the last few years in Michigan, when the abundant colors were mirrored in the myriad of lakes and streams–generously having given me material for Photo Challenges past.
