That word “grace” in an ungracious mouth is but profane. William Shakespeare

I’ve said for years “Grace is how you land on your feet” – and it’s true. Grace is reflected in your actions, in each and every step you take in your journey. Grace is defined as moral strength.

Courage is grace under pressure. – Ernest Hemmingway

Grace is truth-telling.
Grace is forgiveness.
Grace is a deep exhale and a moment of silence during a harsh and hurtful argument.

Strength is natural, but grace is the growth of habit. This charming quality requires practice if it is to become lasting.” – Joseph Joubert

Grace is fiber that becomes woven into a person’s character, it appears at unlikely times, and cannot be denied.

The grace of spirit comes only from heaven, and lights up the whole bodily presence. – Charles Haddon Surgeoun

One of my greatest quests in this life is to live a life of Grace. This is not an easy task; our world challenges us every day. Over the past year I have become increasingly more interested in living according to The Seven Virtues. These Seven Contrary Virtues are meant to counter-balance the Seven Deadly Sins. And, it seems to me, that these Seven Virtues, essentially add up to Grace.

“She takes the blame. She covers the shame. Removes the stain” – “Grace” – U2
