Quote of the Day

O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice.
As thy days, so shall thy strength be which, in modern language, may be translated as thy thoughts so shall thy life be.
Poor France, thy fine climate, rich vineyards, and the wishes of the learned avail nothing; thou art a destitute beggar, and not the powerful friend thou wert represented to me.
John James Audubon
Busy old fool, unruly Sun, why dost thou thus through windows and through curtains call on us? Must to thy motions lovers seasons run?
Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.
Great comforts do, indeed, bear witness to the truth of thy grace, but not to the degree of it; the weak child is oftener in the lap than the strong one.
Execute every act of thy life as though it were thy last.
He that is thy friend indeed, he will help thee in thy need: if thou sorrow, he will weep; if you wake, he cannot sleep; thus of every grief in heart he with thee doth bear a part.
Earth changes, but thy soul and God stand sure.
Thou wilt find rest from vain fancies if thou doest every act in life as though it were thy last.
Flatter not thyself in thy faith in God if thou hast not charity for thy neighbor.
Behold, I am become a reproach to thy holy name, by serving any ambition and the sins of others; which though I did by the persuasion of other men, yet my own conscience did cheek and upbraid me in it.
Touch us gently, Time! Let us glide adown thy stream, Gently, - as we sometimes glide Through a quiet dream!
Happy the man, and happy he alone, he who can call today his own; he who, secure within, can say, tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
It is the hour to rend thy chains, the blossom time of souls.
Katharine Lee Bates
Be assured those will be thy worst enemies, not to whom thou hast done evil, but who have done evil to thee. And those will be thy best friends, not to whom thou hast done good, but who have done good to thee.
Fear not that thy life shall come to an end, but rather that it shall never have a beginning.
John Henry Newman
Let thy step be slow and steady, that thou stumble not.
Employ thy time well, if thou meanest to gain leisure.
And thou wilt give thyself relief, if thou doest every act of thy life as if it were the last.
He is armed without who is innocent within, be this thy screen, and this thy wall of brass.
O solitude, where are the charms That sages have seen in thy face? Better dwell in the midst of alarms, Than reign in this horrible place.
Let age, not envy, draw wrinkles on thy cheeks.
Ah, Hope! what would life be, stripped of thy encouraging smiles, that teach us to look behind the dark clouds of today, for the golden beams that are to gild the morrow.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
