When a man destroys his fellow, people say that such a one is a murderer. When one set in authority destroys, it is said that this one is a faithful judge.

Some suggestions for you :

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; for love is sufficient unto love.

The mountain veiled in mist is not a hill; an oak tree in the rain is not a weeping willow.

It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit, and to know that all blessed dead are standing about you and watching. Work is love made visible.

And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue.

And when you work with love you bind your self to yourself, and to one another, and to God.

You often say, ‘I would give, but only to the deserving.' The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture. They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.

The eye of a human being is a microscope, which makes the world seem bigger than it really is.

Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

The most solid stone in the structure is the lowest one in the foundation.

If the grandfather of the grandfather of Jesus had known what was hidden within him, he would have stood humble and awe-struck before his soul.

Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.

Therefore give now, that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors'.

A God who is good knows no segregation amongst words or names. And were a God to deny his blessing to those who pursue a different path to eternity, there would be no human who should offer worship.

Shall there come a day when wise men are able to unite the dreams of youth and the delights of learning as reproach brings together hearts in conflict? Shall there come a day when man's teacher is nature, and humanity is his book.
