Forgiveness is like faith. You have to keep reviving it.
Forgiveness is the answer to the child’s dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again.
Forgiveness is the economy of the heart… forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.
Forgiveness is the final form of love.
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.

In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value.

Faith indeed tells what the senses do not tell, but not the contrary of what they see. It is above them and not contrary to them.
Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.
Faith is a passionate intuition.
Ultimately, blind faith is the only kind.
Vision looks upward and becomes faith.
Stephen Samuel Wise
Equality is not in regarding different things similarly, equality is in regarding different things differently.
Equality is the soul of liberty; there is, in fact, no liberty without it.
Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact.
Honore de Balzac

As equality increases, so does the number of people struggling for predominance.
The attention of a traveller, should be particularly turned, in the first place, to the various works of Nature, to mark the distinctions of the climates he may explore, and to offer such useful observations on the different productions as may occur.
I am not a great cook, I am not a great artist, but I love art, and I love food, so I am the perfect traveller.
A wise traveler never despises his own country.
Airline travel is hours of boredom interrupted by moments of stark terror.
Travelers never think that they are the foreigners.
