I don’t think Christmas is necessarily about things. It’s about being good to one another, it’s about the Christian ethic, it’s about kindness.
Kindness, I’ve discovered, is everything in life.
True kindness does not involve enabling or compulsion. It can only come from communion with G-d.
Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
A good conscience is a continual Christmas.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.
The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.
The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C.
I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up - they have no holidays.
Let’s be naughty and save Santa the trip.
That’s the true spirit of Christmas; people being helped by people other than me.
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
Santa Claus has the right idea - visit people only once a year.
We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.”
Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.
There can be no vulnerability without risk; there can be no community without vulnerability; there can be no peace, and ultimately no life, without community.
Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
Share our similarities, celebrate our differences.
Ultimately love is everything.
You cannot truly listen to anyone and do anything else at the same time.
Life is difficult. This is the great truth, one of the greatest truths—it is a great truth because once we see this truth, we transcend it.
We cannot let another person into our hearts or minds unless we empty ourselves. We can truly listen to him or truly hear her only out of emptiness.
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
