“Lucky you. I was dying to have a cat. But they wouldn’t let me. Not once in my life have I managed to get something I really wanted. Not once. Can you believe it?

“Don’t wonder why God doesn’t grant all your wishes immediately, but rather give thanks that He doesn’t punish us immediately for all of our mistakes.” —
