Her favorite quote is the poetry from a hymn from Robert Lowry:

My life flows on in endless song above earth’s lamentation.
I hear the clear, though far-off hymn that hails a new creation.
No storm can shake my inmost calm while to the Rock I’m clinging.
Since love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?
Through all the tumult and the strife, I hear that music ringing.
It finds an echo in my soul. How can I keep from singing?
No storm can shake my inmost calm while to the Rock I’m clinging.
Since love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?
