A Quote by James Russell Miller on acceptance, blessings, christ, god, grief, memory, prayer, silence, and sorrow

The happiest, sweetest, tenderest homes are not those where there has been no sorrow, but those which have been overshadowed with grief, and where Christ's comfort was accepted. The very memory of the sorrow is a gentle benediction that broods ever over the household, like the silence that comes after prayer. There is a blessing sent from God in every burden of sorrow.

A Quote by James Madison on blessings, choice, evil, good, people, and reflection

A cool and candid people will at once reflect that the purest of human blessings must have a portion of alloy in them, that the choice must always be made, if not of the lesser evil, at least of the greater, not the perfect, good.

A Quote by James Freeman Clarke on beauty, blessings, books, courage, eternity, faith, gifts, god, heaven, hope, idealism, life, pain, truth, and world

When I consider what some books have done for the world, and what they are doing, how they keep up our hope, awaken new courage and faith, soothe pain, give an ideal life those whose hours are cold and hard, bind together distant ages and foreign lands, create new worlds of beauty, bring down truth from heaven; I give eternal blessings for this gift, and thank God for books.

A Quote by Izaak Walton on blessings, contentment, men, and sacrifice

Blessings we enjoy daily, and for the most of them, because they be so common, men forget to pay their praises. But let not us, because it is a sacrifice so pleasing to him who still protects us, and gives us flowers, and showers, and meat, and content.
