    Well, this one stood out to me: you cannot enjoy the rainbow, without the rain.

    My other quotes are biblical

    HOW MUCH MORE SO, is particularly wonderful to my ears. But goes with this: if you, although being imperfect, know how to give good gifts to your children, HOW MUCH MORE SO, the Father in heaven, who is perfect, will give holy spirit, when you ask Him for it? That comes from Romans 11:13

    Ecclesiastes 3:11 He made every thing pretty and put time in definite into our hearts, but that we will never get to know His works. Not a complete quote there!

    Luke 1:20 there is no excuse to not believe in Creation for it is all around us.

    A note: I am not preaching here! These are just what I consider beautiful quotes :)

    Adhere to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did. On the contrary, if you falter, and give up, you will lose the power of keeping any resolution, and will regret it all your life.

    Galadriel is so 'all seeing' that she comes off a bit omniscient. So I found her saying 'Who knows?" humorous. Like if God said "The hell if I know." :D
