Let me tell you about love, that
silly word you believe is about
whether you like somebody or
whether somebody likes you or
whether you can put up with
somebody in order to get something
or someplace you want or you
believe it has to do with how your
body responds to another body like
robins or bison or maybe you
believe love is how forces or
nature or luck is benign to you in
particular not maiming or killing
you but if so doing it for your own
good. Love is none of that. There
is nothing in nature like it. Not
in robins or bison or in the
banging tails of your hunting dogs
and not in blossoms or suckling
foal. Love is divine only and
difficult always. If you think it
is easy you are a fool. If you
think it is natural you are blind.
It is a learned application without
reason or motive except that it is
God. You do not deserve love
regardless of the suffering you
have endured. You do not deserve
love because somebody did you
wrong. You do not deserve love just
because you want it. You can only
earn - by practice and careful
contemplations - the right to
express it and you have to learn
how to accept it. Which is to say
you have to earn God. You have to
practice God. You have to think
God-carefully. And if you are a
good and diligent student you may
secure the right to show love. Love
is not a gift. It is a diploma. A
diploma conferring certain
privileges: the privilege of
expressing love and the privilege
of receiving it. How do you know
you have graduated? You don't.
What you do know is that you are
human and therefore educable, and
therefore capable of learning how
to learn, and therefore interesting
to God, who is interested only in
Himself which is to say He is
interested only in love. Do you
understand me? God is not
interested in you. He is interested
in love and the bliss it brings to
those who understand and share the
interest. Couples that enter the
sacrament of marriage and are not
prepared to go the distance or are
not willing to get right with the
real love of God cannot thrive.
They may cleave together like
robins or gulls or anything else
that mates for life. But if they
eschew this mighty course, at the
moment when all are judged for the
disposition of their eternal lives,
their cleaving won't mean a
thing. God bless the pure and holy.
Amen

God made the world for the delight
of human beings - if we could see
His goodness everywhere, His
concern for us, His awareness of
our needs: the phone call we've
waited for, the ride we are
offered, the letter in the mail,
just the little things He does for
us throughout the day. As we
remember and notice His love for
us, we just begin to fall in love
with Him because He is so busy with
us -- you just can't resist
Him. I believe there's no such
thing as luck in life, it's
God's love, it's His.

May your pockets be heavy and your

Some luck lies in not getting what
you thought you wanted but getting
what you have, which once you have
got it you may be smart enough to
see is what you would have wanted
had you known.

Industry executives and analysts
often mistakenly talk about
strategy as if it were some kind of
chess match.  But in chess, you
have just two opponents, each with
identical resources, and with luck
playing a minimal role.  The real
world is much more like a poker
game, with multiple players trying
to make the best of whatever hand
fortune has dealt them.  In our
industry, Bill Gates owns the table
until someone proves otherwise.

Responsibility, n.  A detachable
burden easily shifted to the
shoulders of God, Fate, Fortune,
Luck or one's neighbor.  In the
days of astrology it was customary
to unload it upon a star.

In spite of the six thousand
manuals on child raising in the
bookstores, child raising is still
a dark continent and no one really
knows anything.  You just need a
lot of love and luck - and, of
course, courage.

Bill Cosby
