"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that they have been robbed.
The fact is that most putts don't drop; most beef is tough; most children just grow up to be people; most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration and most jobs are often dull than otherwise.
Life is like an old-time rail journey...delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."
- Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
