4 Sourced Quotes
We bear it calmly, though a ponderous woe,
And still adore the hand that gives the blow.
The best may slip, and the most cautious fall; He's more than mortal that ne'er err'd at all.
We live and learn, but not the wiser grow.
Heaven is not always angry when he strikes,
But most chastises those whom most he likes.
Quote of the day
The meaning of life is not to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by eating the succulent fruit of the Tree of Life and by living in the here and now as fully and creatively as we can.
