The world is dying for want, not of good preaching, but of good hearing.George Dana Boardman
Truth lies within a little and certain compass, but error is immense.James Agee

At a certain age some people's minds close up they live on their intellectual fat.
Shared joys make a friend, not shared sufferings.
