Some Thoughts on the Season

The way you spend Christmas is far more important than how much.
--Henry David Thoreau

The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart.
--Helen Keller

It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you...yes, it is Christmas every time you smile at your brother and offer him your hand.
--Mother Teresa

Christmas began in the heart of God. It is complete only when it reaches the heart of man.

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.
 ~Charles Dickens
