It seemed like every page had a great line or phrase that I loved. All the quotes mentioned already I had marked in my book as well. So I thought I’d share one that no one has said yet:”If we tend to the things that are important in life, if we are right with those we love and behave in line with our faith, our lives will not be cursed with the aching throb of unfulfilled business. Our words will always be sincere, our embraces will be tight. We will never wallow in the agony of ‘I could have, I should have.’ We can sleep in a storm. …And when it’s time, our goodbyes will be complete.” (page 93)October 24, 2009 at 3:51 pm #13349
The nurse gave him his pills. On her way out, he whispered after her.
“Please…if you turn off the lights, could you stop by once in a while and remember I’m here?”In the job of nursing, may we all take the time to stop by and remember our patients :^)October 26, 2009 at 3:51 pm #13350
I am neither better nor smarter, only luckier. And I should be ashamed of thinking I know everything because you can know the whole world and still feel lost in it. So many people are in pain – no matter how smart or accomplished – they cry, they yearn, they hurt. But instead of looking down on thing, they look up, which is where I should be looking too. Because when the world quiets to the sound of your own breathing, we all want the same things: Comfort, love and a peaceful heart.October 26, 2009 at 3:51 pm #13351
when Reb said: “my answer here, too, is yes, there is something. But friends, I’m sorry. Now that I know, I can’t even tell you”
It shows how happy Reb in heaven above and he wants to share it with others, he can’t…but we’ll know it someday by ourselves 🙂November 11, 2009 at 3:52 pm #13352
Did you feel guilty cursing God – you, of all people?
“No,” he said. “Because even in doing so, I was recognizing there was a greater power than me.”

Page 162:If the only thing wrong with Moses is that he’s not yours; if the only thing wrong with Jesus is that he’s not yours; if the only thing wrong with mosques, Lent, chanting, Mecca, Buddha, confession, or reincarnation is that they’re not yours – well, maybe the problem is you.November 15, 2009 at 3:53 pm #13354

of course there are many, just to quote a couple-“In any conversation, I was taught, there are three parties: You, the other person and God””When the world quites to the sound of your own breathing, we all want the same things: Comfort, love and a Peaceful Heart.”December 27, 2009 at 4:04 pm #13358
pg 144 – “Remember, the only difference between ‘marital’ and ‘martial’ is where you put the ‘i’.”…and in this perspective, the I is a pronoun!December 30, 2009 at 4:05 pm #13359
“Have a Little Faith”, was very special to me. The line I loved the most was on page # 65. “He spent an hour talking to a stranger”.
It reminds me of my dad who I associated with Albert Lewis.
My dad took care of my mom who had Alhemizer’s for 13 yrs., yet he has thebestattitude and is is always singing or humming. Plus always has time (now 83 yrs. of age) for everyone. She passed away 12 yrs ago. In writing “Have a Little Faith, it was as though you reached into my “heart” and played the song of love for my dad who one day will move on……
My Dad has never truly met a stranger and loves everyone. Vice-versa!Even though I do not know you, we are kindred spirits thru your work. Continue to write. You have a calling. Thank you.
I appreciate you. You are called to write. Please continue to do so.July 27, 2010 at 4:05 pm #13360
