Kate and her blog team wish you the best for this holiday season.  We hope you enjoy these sentiments of joy, love and wisdom expressed by familiar public figures over the years.  Since loving and feeling loved is the basis for all mankind, we feel these quotes are timeless and can bring healing and comfort.

“Again loved Christmas is here, full of divine benedictions and crowned with the dearest memories in human history — the earthly advent and nativity of our Lord and Master.  At this happy season the veil of time springs aside at the touch of Love.”  Mary Baker Eddy

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.  To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”  Calvin Coolidge

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple, loving others.  Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”  Bob Hope

“Christmas, my child, is love in action.  Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.”  Dale Evans

“A good conscience is a continual Christmas.”  Benjamin Franklin

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”  Charles Dickens

“He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”  Roy L. Smith

“Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl.  But it warmed more than you body.  It warmed you heart … filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.”  Bess Streeter Aldrick

“When we recall  Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest hings – not the great occasions — give off the greatest glow of happiness.”  Bob Hope

“I love to observe Christmas in quietude, humility, benevolence, charity, letting good will towards man, eloquent silence, prayer, and praise express my conception of Truth’s appearing.”  Mary Baker Eddy

We joyously wish all “a happy Christmas, a feast of Soul and a famine of sense.” Mary Baker Eddy
