Susan B. Anthony

Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before. And this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth.

Edgar Allan Poe

Some people write heavily, some write lightly. I prefer the light approach because I believe there is a great deal of false reverence about. There is too much solemnity and intensity in dealing with sacred matters; too much speaking in holy tones.
C. S. Lewis

Giotto di Bondone

Franklin D. Roosevelt
