Abraham Joshua Heschel
It is true that a fellow cannot ignore women - but he can think of them as he ought - as sisters, not as sparring partners.
I thank fate for having made me born poor. Poverty taught me the true value of the gifts useful to life.
True contentment is a thing as active as agriculture. It is the power of getting out of any situation all that there is in it. It is arduous and it is rare.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
