Tip #601: Wishing You a Season of Light

Thank you for coming along on the Tips journey this past year. I am both humbled and honored.

Although there was much to be thankful for, this year has had some very dark and troubling moments.

In the hope that we will all finally learn to see the light in each other- and live and let live, here are four quotes about light that resonated with me.

“Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.” William Arthur Ward

“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.” Evelyn Dunbar

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.” Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

“In the beginning there was nothing. God said, ‘Let there be light!’ And there was light. There was still nothing, but you could see it a whole lot better.” Ellen DeGeneres

Tips will return in January.

Have a wonderful holiday.

May your learning and your life be sweet.
