.....................with John Henry Newman:
I sought to hear the voice of God and climbed the topmost steeple, but God declared: "Go down again - I dwell among the people."
Doing is at a far greater distance from intending to do than you at first sight imagine. Join.
In a higher world it is otherwise, but here below to live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often.
We can believe what we choose. We are answerable for what we choose to believe.
If we insist on being as sure as is conceivable... we must be content to creep along the ground, and never soar.
Fear not that life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning.
There is a knowledge which is desirable, though nothing come of it, as being of itself a treasure, and a sufficient remuneration of years of labor.
Growth is the only evidence of life.
Good is never accomplished except at the cost of those who do it, truth never breaks through except through the sacrifice of those who spread it.
