On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.
- Douglas Horton

The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.
- Carl Knudsen

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
- S.D. Gordon

Today was a beautiful day. Church was exquisitely lovely because we had flower communion, which is my favourite! Everyone brings a flower to church, then the flowers are blessed and everyone gets to come up to the alter and take someone else's flower home with them. It's a beautiful thing.

Just before he was put to death in Dachau, Dr. Capek wrote this prayer reflecting on his own life and the state of his spirit:
"It is worthwhile to live and fight courageously for sacred ideals.
Oh blow ye evil winds into my body's fire; my soul you'll never unravel.
Even though disappointed a thousand times or fallen in the fight and everything would worthless seem,
I have lived amidst eternity.
Be grateful, my soul,
My life was worth living.
He who was pressed from all sides but remained victorious in spirit is welcomed into the choir of heroes.
He who overcame the fetters giving wing to the mind is entering into the golden age of the victorious."
