DEAR Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our feverish ways!
Reclothe us in our rightful mind;
In purer lives, Thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.
John G. Whittier

MAKE a man perceive worth, and in its reflection he sees his own relative unworth, and worships thereupon inevitably, not with stiff courtesy, but rejoicingly, passionately, and, best of all restfully: for the inner capacity of awe and love is infinite in man; and only in finding these, can we find peace.
John Ruskin

TO see all things in God: to make of one’s own life a journey towards the ideal; to live with gratitude, with devoutness, with gentleness and courage; this was the splendid aim of Marcus Aurelius. And if you add to it the humility which kneels, and the charity which gives, you have the whole wisdom of the children of God, the immortal joy which is the heritage of the true Christian.
Henri F. Amiel
