If there were no night, we would not appreciate the day, nor could we see the stars and the vastness of the heavens. We must partake of the bitter with the sweet. There is a divine purpose in the adversities we encounter every day. They prepare, they purge, they purify, and thus they bless.by james_e._faust
When I auditioned for drama college, they asked me to do my Shakespeare. I couldn’t do it. They asked me to do my modern, and I couldn’t do it. They asked me if I had a song prepared, and I said ‘No,’ so I sang ‘Happy Birthday.’ And I did a reasonable improvisation, a reasonable one, nothing special at all. I don’t know how I got in, but I did.
