Lent Quote 14

14. We are survival machines - robot vehicles blindly programmed
to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes.
This is a truth which still fills me with astonishment.

Lent Quote 13

13. Life is just a bowl of cherries
Don't take it serious,
Life's too mysterious
You work, you save, you worry so
But you can't take your dough
When you go, go, go

So keep repeating "It's the berries."
The strongest oak must fall
The sweet things in life to you were just loaned
So how can you lose what you've never owned

Life is just a bowl of cherries
So live and laugh,
Laugh and love
Live and laugh at it all!

"Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries" lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown, published in 1931.

Lent Quote 11

11. Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every highway,
Every path you know.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.

From the Sound of Music, by Oscar Hammerstein

Lent Quote 8

8. There is nothing in the world that would so effectively help one to survive even the worst conditions, as the knowledge that there is a meaning in one’s life…He who has a WHY to live for can bear almost any HOW.
