O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;

to be loved as to love.

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- St. Francis of Assisi

where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Eisenhower came both to despise war
and to see that "war settles nothing."

When truly necessary, violence met with violence -
but never hate responded to with hate.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

and I hate that the world is unjust.
I have work; I have woes; I have troubles for life;
but I don't have a ME that I trust.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
