“Barley porridge, or a crust of bread, and water do not make a very cheerful diet, but nothing gives one keener pleasure than the ability to derive pleasure even from that — and the feeling of having arrived at something which one cannot be deprived of by any unjust stroke of fortune.”

Seneca


“I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives.”

Andrew Jackson


“The kingdom of God is just behind the darkness of closed eyes, and the first gate that opens to it is your peace.”

Paramahansa Yogananda


“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”

Saint Augustine


“There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.”

Erma Bombeck
