Yet in the midst of suffering love proceeds like a millstone, hard surfaced and straight forward. Having died to self interest, she risks everything and asks for nothing.

Religion seeks grace and favor, but those who gamble these away are God's favorites, for they neither put God to the test nor knock at the door of gain and loss." - Rumi

The fact that we still live with dogs, even when we don't have to herd or hunt our dinner, gives me hope for humans and canines alike." - Oprah Winfrey
