A Cup of Blessing

"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"In all ranks of life the human heart yearns for the beautiful; and the beautiful things that God makes are his gift to all alike." ~Harriet Beecher Stowe

"Why should we think about things that are lovely? Because thinking determines life. It is a common mistake to blame life upon environment. Environment modifies but does not govern life. The soul is stronger than its surroundings." ~William James
