God always has a reason. It’s just so hard sometimes for us to accept it. Fear gets in the way. Fear of that great unknown, fear that God will require something that we cannot, or don’t want, to do. But we can. God never asks anything of us that He doesn’t give us sufficient strength to do. And He never, ever asks it unless it’s for our greater good.
~  Partial quote from “Daughter Of Joy” by Kathleen Morgan ~

Don’t limit the Lord with your own shallow perceptions of Him, or assign Him a level of compassion equal only to yours…
~ “Daughter Of Joy”  by  Kathleen Morgan ~

A friend who is not willing to risk his very friendship for a friend is perhaps not such a good friend as he thinks he is.

The wise learn many things from their enemies.
~ Arisophanes ~

Mercy shown to an evil man is cruelty to the innocent.
~ Ancient Jewish Proverb ~

What is the single most powerful weapon available to men?       Our greatest power is knowledge.  In warfare.  In business.  In the affairs of our own lives.  In the defense of our faith.  Without knowledge, we are nothing.
~ “Magnus”  by Sigmund Brower ~

Ain’t no shame to be ignorant.  Only shame is to stay ignorant when you don’t have to be.

~ Donal MacDarroch (“An Ancient Strife”  by Michael Phillips) ~

If people speak ill of you, live so that no one will believe them.
~ Plato ~

One’s standard of personal ethics, I’m afraid, is comparative and depends, more than most of us would care to admit, upon circumstances.
~ Margo Blair  (“Terror By Twilight”  by  Kathleen Moore Knight) ~

Men are like chocolates.  Avoid the nutty ones and the ones who have been tried and put back.

When you play hard to get too often, you sometimes don’t get got.
