The Amish Bride by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould

"First I cultivated around the rosemary. The warm scent overpowered everything nearby. It added wonderful flavor to roasted potatoes, root vegetables, and chicken, but as a tincture, if too much was used,.. it could be deadly. Like so many things in life, it could be part of a recipe for success or for disaster." (p.g. 254)

"I heard once that to truly forgive means you no longer resent the person." (p.g. 255)

I 'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I ever had by Tony Danza

" Nobody can force you to lift a finger to help someone else, but when you choose to make that effort, it also makes you feel more connected and less helpless. And let's be  honest; you feel good about yourself."
(p.g. 129)

"In the most basic, first stage, behavior is motivated only by the desire to avoid pain; in the highest stages, action is motivated by a strong sense of personal principle and concern for the welfare of others." (p.g. 180)

As Shakespeare says, " There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads ton to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries." (p.g. 245)
