"Religion is in the heart, not in the knees."

Douglas William Jerrold

"Trying to do good to people without God's help is no easier than making the sun shine at midnight.You discover that you've got to abandon all your own preferences, your own bright ideas, and guide souls along the road our Lord has marked out for them.You mustn't coerce them into some path of your own choosing."

St. Theresa of Lisieux

"If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap, than his neighbor, though he build his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The thoughtful soul to solitude retires."

Omar Khayyam

"Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
