"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal in life is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he's been robbed. The fact that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most lobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old-time rail journey—delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally with beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank god for letting you have the ride."
— Gordon B. Hinckley
American religious leader, born June 23, 1910
