Christians rejoice because God is their heavenly Father who forgives the penitent, because God sent his Son into the world for the salvation of all who have faith, because Jesus Christ not only died but was raised again from the dead and because joy is one of the ninefold fruits of the Spirit.W. G. Morrice

It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.Aesop
Nothing feebler than a man does the earth raise up, of all the things which breathe and move on the earth, for he believes that he will never suffer evil in the future, as long as the gods give him success and he flourishes in his strength but when the blessed gods bring sorrows too to pass, even these he bears, against his will, with steadfast spirit, for the thoughts of earthly men are like the day which the father of gods and men brings upon them.Homer
When people agree with me I always feel that I must be wrong.Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde
