Quotable

“If stars are the light, then I’d say saints are people the light shines through. Light shines through the everyday saints around us in the world and illuminates what they see. The light just goes right through them to what they love so that we can see its beauty. They don’t get in the way because they’re looking too.”
– Michael Malone, First Lady

I read this book years and years ago, and this quote struck me. So much, in fact, that I grabbed a pen and wrote it down on a piece of yellow legal paper, which I have kept ever since. Tonight, I was reminded of it and pulled it out of my bedside table drawer in order to share it.
