A Quote by Ray Bradbury on force, life, miracles, and universe

We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms.  You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.

Ray Bradbury (1920 -)

This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love; the more they give, the more they possess of that precious nourishing love from which flowers and children have their strength and which could help all human beings if they would take it without doubting.

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on blindness, day, justice, and miracles

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.

A Quote by Newton B. Drury on america, democracy, determination, effort, goals, miracles, patience, and traditions

By patience and determination, rather than by a harsh upsetting of tradition, we move toward our national aspirations.... This is the way we get things done in America. One man tells another, does what he can, till the sum of these efforts grows into a national aspiration-a precious goal. Then occurs our miracle of democracy: because the groundwork has been surely laid, the goal is already within our grasp.
