Truth is rarely written in ink, but more commonly found in nature. It is the breath of life to human kind, where it passes through three stages before it is recognized as truth:
In the first stage, it is ridiculed. In the second stage, it is opposed. In the third stage, it is regard as self-evident.
Courage is the greatest of all the virtues. It is not the absence of fear, but the acknowledgment that something besides fear is more important. It is the sum total of strength and wisdom.
Adversity is like a strong wind.
It tears away from us all but that which cannot be torn, so that we are forced to see ourselves as we really are. We then turn to God for help when we are revealed, only to learn that it is God who gives us the revelation.
What matters is not the belief a person holds, but the strength of the conviction.
We are all conditioned from teh cradle. this conditioning may appear superficial, but it is indellible. You cannot education a person wholly out of his beliefs because conviction is a more dangerous enemy of truth than lies.
Vanity is so secure in the hearts of man. Everyone wants to be admired. To cure yourself of the affliction of caring how you appear to others, concern yourself only with how you appear before God.
