The earth has grown old with its burden of care,
But at Christmas it always is young.
- Phillips Brooks
Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
- Norman Wesley Brooks
Christmas has lost its meaning for us because we have lost the spirit of expectancy. We cannot prepare for an observance. We must prepare for an experience.
- Handel H. Brown
Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
