Quote of the Day
As you submit to God more and more, you will get accustomed to being nourished by the power of truth. He is so holy that He cannot lie. God reveals His truth to His people through the Holy Spirit.

J. R. Martinez

Under socialism all will govern in turn and will soon become accustomed to no one governing.

Henry Kissinger once told me he was very concerned about the Internet's impact on people's ability to absorb information in a concentrated way, because we've become accustomed to looking up something, getting a snippet and being satisfied with that - as opposed to reading through and considering a weighty tome that goes into great depth.

Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.
Saint Teresa of Avila
