Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance.
To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To you, respect.
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December's bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same.
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
At Christmas play and make good cheer, for Christmas comes but once a year.
Love the giver more than the gift.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.
The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing other's loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.
Things must be felt with the heart.
The holiest of holidays are those kept by ourselves in silence and apart; The secret anniversaries of the heart.
To many people holidays are not voyages of discovery, but a ritual of reassurance.
Christmas is for children. But it is for grownups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide bound hearts.
The secret anniversaries of the heart.
I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.
No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one.
I have had a holiday, and I'd like to take it up professionally.
May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter, and every window open to great possibility.
