I've just joined here, although I've been using this site for quotes to use for a while now.

I am currently looking for a quote about the holiday season, no specific holiday.

BTW, I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season!

Here's a favorite quote for Jewish holidays - any Jewish holiday:
"They wanted to kill us; we won. Let's eat."

I love it WriterFox! It obviously won't work as a general holiday season quote, but I'll be using it!

Nice quote. With bitter humour.

I'm seeking a quote to use in a letter I've written to parents who tragically lost their son in an automobile accident. Prefer, obviously, something classy, hopeful, & sensitive. Danke, Michael[/quote]

You may like to include all or part of this:

Joy and Sorrow
Then a woman said, "Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow."

And he answered:

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.

And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.

And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.

Is not the cup that hold your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?

And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Some of you say, "Joy is greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater."

But I say unto you, they are inseparable.

Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy.

Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.

When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.

from "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran

Gumtree-

Thank you for the poem, the quote from Kahlil Gibran. I may use part of the lines you submitted.
Thanks again,
Michael
