"One door away from Heaven,
We live each day and hour.
One door away from Heaven,
But it lies beyond our power
To open the door to Heaven
And enter when we choose.
One door away from Heaven,
And the key is ours to lose.
One door away from Heaven,
But, oh, the entry dues."


Dean Koontz

"Now - here is my secret:
I tell it to you with an openness of heart
that I doubt I shall ever achieve again,
so I pray that you are in a quiet room
as you hear these words.
My secret is that I need God
- that I am sick and can no longer
make it alone.
I need God to help me give,
because I no longer seem to be
capable of giving;
to help me be kind, as I no longer seem
capable of kindness;
to help me love, as I seem beyond being
able to love."
Douglas Coupland
