“Misshapen, Imperfect, Scarred – Extraordinary”

“The fir tree has no choice about starting its life in the crack of a rock . . . .  What (nourishment) it finds is often meager, and above the ground appears a twisted trunk, grown in irregular spurts, marred by dead and broken branches, and bent far to one side by the battering winds.  Yet at the top . . . some twigs hold their green needles year after year, giving proof that – misshapen, imperfect, scarred – the tree lives.”     (Harriet Arrow)



“It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more ‘manhood’ to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex.  Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.”     (Alex Karras)



“It is extraordinary how extraordinary the ordinary person is.”      (George F. Will)
