He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven.
A man that looks on glass,
On it may stay his eye;
Or if he pleaseth, through it pass,
And then the heaven espy.
Religion stands on tiptoe in our land,
Ready to pass to the American strand.
Surely if each one saw another's heart, There would be no commerce, No sale or bargain pass: all would disperse And live apart.
Quote of the day
