Sunday Inspiration: Love Is a Struggle

Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.
—Fred Rogers

Sunday Inspiration: Escapism

It is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which “escape” is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?
—J. R. R. Tolkien
