Harry Connick, Jr.
If you cannot mould yourself entirely as you would wish, how can you expect other people to be entirely to your liking?
Thomas a Kempis
A person who has not done one half his day's work by ten o clock, runs a chance of leaving the other half undone.
There have been huge Muslim demonstrations against cartoons depicting Muhammad and any other perceived insult against Islam. But I am unaware of a single demonstration of Muslims against Muslim terror directed at non-Muslims.
You cannot hold on to anything good. You must be continually giving - and getting. You cannot hold on to your seed. You must sow it - and reap anew. You cannot hold on to riches. You must use them and get other riches in return.
