Our fates are in the hands of An Almighty God, to whom I can with pleasure confide my own; he can save us, or destroy us; his Councils are fixed and cannot be disappointed, and all his designs will be Accomplished.
Abraham Clark

I think it is a good thing to have woman friends at every stage of life. We confide in each other, we support each other, we understand each other most of the time.

Anne Roiphe
