Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart Knowledge is power It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it. The best way out is always through. The welfare of each is bound up in the welfare of all.
