“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running and shouting that he’s been robbed. Most putts don’t drop. Most beef is tough. Most children grow up to be just people. Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration. Most jobs are often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old-time rail journey-delays, sidetracks, smoke,dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.”-Jenkins Lloyd Jones
