We’ve been using Corelle plates and bowls for 20+ years and I’m not aware of 
any breakage or injuries. I would recommend them.

"Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
Where there is sadness, joy
Oh divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled . . . as to console
To be understood . . . as to understand
To be loved . . . as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned
It is in dying that we are born into eternal life."
