Like so many others around the world, I watched in horror when
on September 11th the events in New York, Washington DC and Pennsylvania
unfolded. I was left emotionally and psychologically drained and
wondered what response could be offered to this catastrophe. This
website is the best gift that I can offer.
Several years ago I did a study into the nature and purpose of
suffering. The result of that study was a book published in 1995
entitled Fire & Gold: Benefiting from Life's Tests. The
compilation focused on the Writings of the Baha'i faith--writings
which were enormously comforting and which also seemed incredibly
comprehensive on the nature and purpose of tests and difficulties.
A selection of these quotes has been chosen for this site in the
hope that some measure of meaning may be offered to others. This
site is by no means comprehensive--additional quotes from other
religious texts as well as resources for further study will be added
in the coming month.
In the meantime, it is hoped that these quotes will bring to you
as much comfort and hope as they have to others.
