Reflection on a Famous Quote – March 3rd 2012, by Danny J. Stevens

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.  Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.”

~ Helen Keller

The architect of the universe uses the tools to shape and mold our lives.  We cannot create something greater than ourselves.  By going through the trials, mishaps and experiences we can assist others.   Just as the artisan chips away at the stone, smoothing out the rough edges in to a beautiful sculpture, so it is with life.  We can allow the pressures to crack and ruin the artwork in progress, or try to allow the work to complete our lives so that we can be of greater service to others.
