BUY THE TRUTH, AND SELL IT NOT.
The more noble the cause, the more devious the motive.
To go against the dominant thinking of your friends, of most of the people
see every day, is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can have.
THE GRAND INQUISITOR
by Fyodor Dostoevsky...from the Book : The Brothers Karamasov
[Jesus on trial by the Inquisition]
The AUTHORITIES: "Oh never, never can they (the masses) feed themselves
without US (totalitarian State).
No Science will give them bread so long as they remain Free.
In the end they will lay their Freedom at our feet, and say to us,
'MAKE US YOUR SLAVES, BUT FEED US.'
They will understand themselves at last, that freedom and bread enough for
are inconceivable together;
for never, never will they be able to share between them!
Thou (speaking to Jesus Christ) didst promise them the Bread of Heaven,
but I repeat again, can it compare with earthly bread in the eyes of the
ever sinful and ignoble race of man ?
And if for the sake of the Bread of Heaven, thousands and tens of thousands
shall follow Thee (Jesus),
What is to become of the millions and tens of millions of creatures who will
have the strength to forego the earthly bread for the sake of the Heavenly ?
Choosing (earthly) bread, Thou (Jesus) wouldest have satisfied the universal
and eternal craving of humanity----Finding Someone to Worship."

Ride on, ride on! Rough-shod if need be;
Smooth-shod if that will do, but ride on!
Ride on over all obstacles, and Win The Race!
Feed your Faith, and starve your doubts.
Said the Robin to the Sparrow:' I should like to really know
Why these anxious human beings rush about and worry so".
Said the Sparrow to the Robin, "Friend, I think that it must be
That they have no Heavenly Father such as cares for you and me."
Concerning our Redemption on Calvary:
“I owed a debt I couldn't pay;
He paid a debt He didn't owe.”
Jesus died for all men-----
Not just those we know and love.
You only have power over people as long as you don't take everything away
But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power----
He's Free again.
Crime bill legislation:
Another act of Tyranny,
In the name of correcting an abuse.
You may talk about me all you please,
I'll talk about you on my knees.
When everybody's wrong, everybody's right.
Nivelle de la Chaussee [French playwright]
The poor are no more dependent upon you God, than are the rich.
Rather than criticize them, pray for them.
Mrs. Arthur Blessett
First they came for the Jews and no one protested.
Then they came for the Gypsies.
Then they came for the Communists and no one protested.
Then they came for the Catholics and no one protested.
Then they came for me, and there was No One Left to protest.
"Good Conduct" affirms the correctness of Michael New's stand
Constitution and the courage required to take that stand. Sometimes the duty
fight for the right falls on one man's shoulders, and that man acts,
not for himself alone, but for all citizens, and for his

I would rather have the single approval of God,
than the loudest applause of man.

Thank you God, for what You've given me.
Thank you for what You've taken away.
And thank you for what is left.
Sweet Ol' Bill
He who fears he shall suffer,
Already suffers what he fears.
If the end brings me out all right,
what is said against me won't amount to anything.
If the end brings me out wrong,
10 angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Abraham Lincoln [1809-1865] 56 years
I am a creature of a day,
passing through life as an arrow through the air.
A few moments hence, I am no more seen--I drop into eternity.
I want to know one thing... the way to Heaven.
God has given us a way, written in the Good Book, the Bible.
O give me that Book!
At any price, give me the Book of God !
The past is history.
The future, a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called "the present".
Keep yourselves in the love of God [Jude 21]
(No Matter What.)
