And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more? —Theodor Seuss Geisel

Beautiful people do not just happen. —Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
