PATER SERAPHICUS. Higher rise, still higher, growing Stronger imperceptibly, Near the Divine Presence gaining A more perfect purity! What is it the spirit thrives on, What fills the ethereal space? Endless love whose revelation Blitheness brings, eternal bliss.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
He who possesses science and art also has religion; but he who possesses neither of those two, let him have religion!
He who does not think much of himself is much more esteemed than he imagines.
The man with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.
Letters are among the most significant memorial a person can leave behind them.
It is much easier to recognise error than to find truth; for error lies on the surface and may be overcome; but truth lies in the depths, and to search for it is not given to every one.
