QUOTES OF JULY TO PONDER:
" The glowing Ruby should adorn
Those who in warm July are born,
Then they will be exempt and free
From love's doubt and anxiety."
- Unknown author
"July is the seventh month of the year according to the Gregorian calendar. It was the fifth month in the early calendar of the ancient Romans. The Romans called the month Quintilius, which means fifth. A Roman Senate renamed the month to Julius (July) in honour of Julius Caesar, who was born on 12 July. The Anglo- Saxon names for the month included Heymonath or Meadmonath, referring respectively to haymaking and the flowering of meadows."
"We go withering in July
To ply the hard incessant hoe;
Panting beneath the brazen sky
We sweat and grumble, but we go."
Ruth Pitter, The Diehards
"He makes a July's day as short as December."
- William Shakespeare
The flames kindled on the 4th of July 1776, have spread over too much of the globe to be extinguished by the feeble engines of despotism; on the contrary, they will consume these engines and all who work them."
- Thomas Jefferson

Each festival celebrates the coming or returning of The Light. Since our symbol is the chalice, perhaps we can all use a reminder about sharing our light with the world: the light of Truth, the warmth of Community, and the fire of Commitment.
