I THINK this is the authentic sign and seal
Of Godhead, that it ever waxes glad,
And more glad, until gladness blossoms, bursts
Into a rage to suffer for mankind.
Robert Browning


THIS is a spurious goodness which is good for the sake of reward. The child that speaks truth for the sake of the praise of truth, is not truthful. The man who is honest because honesty is the best policy, has not integrity in his heart. He who endeavours to be humble, and holy, and perfect, in order to win heaven, has only a counterfeit religion.
Frederick W. Robertson


A MAN is not good at all unless he takes pleasure in noble deeds. No one would call a man just who did not take pleasure in doing justice, nor generous who took no pleasure in acts of generosity.
Aristotle
