For I have known them all already, known them all -
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?

T.S. Eliot

"Follow the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ and to walk in his footsteps."
St. Francis of Assisi

"If, however, you seek Jesus in all things, you will surely find Him. "
Thomas à Kempis

The effect of divine providence is not only that
things should happen somehow; but that they should happen either
by necessity or by contingency. Therefore whatsoever divine
providence ordains to happen infallibly and of necessity happens
infallibly and of necessity; and that happens from contingency,
which the plan of divine providence conceives to happen from
St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica

"A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God. Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations bind, can have any real Good Will towards Men? Can he be a patriot who, by an openly vicious conduct, is undermining the very bonds of Society? ... The Scriptures tell us "righteousness exalteth a Nation."
- Abigail Adams

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
- John Adams

"God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it."

I asked.

Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear.

When the prophet, a complacent fat man,
Arrived at the mountaintop
He cried: "Woe to my knowledge!
I intended to see good white lands
And bad black lands—
But the scene is grey."

Sometimes, the most profound of awakenings come wrapped in the quietest of moments.

Stephen Crane

Suburbs have no charms to soothe
The reckless dreams of youth."

Because, just then, death had come and rested its head on the foot of the cot and he could smell its breath . . .
It had moved up on him now, but it had no shape any more. It simply occupied space.
"Tell it to go away."
It did not go away but moved a little closer . . .

Ernest Hemingway, "The Snows of Kilimanjaro"
