---Many beautiful lessons may be learned from ice. Its firmness and strength are in contrast with the weakness of water. It reflects the light that falls on it, having a clear bluish color. It stores up water for time of need.
---Pound ice until it is shattered to powder and it will freeze into a solid mass again. Warm it in the sun and it quickly melts. You may argue with someone until you reduce his arguments to powder, but he will freeze solid again. Warm him with kindness and he will melt and become your friend.
---If you freeze salt water, the salt is left behind and the ice crystals are pure water. If our lives are crystal-clear, they will not carry with them the contamination of the world.
