Good Quotes – 30 March 2008

Here are a few more words of wisdom by well-known authors that we’ve added to our quotation collection:

“Among the noblest in the land –
Though man may count himself the least –
That man I honor and revere,
Who without favor, without fear,
In the great city dares to stand,
The friend of every friendless beast.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 – 1882)

“One farmer says to me, ‘You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with;’ and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.”
Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)

“Think of the fierce energy concentrated in an acorn! You bury it in the ground, and it explodes into an oak! Bury a sheep, and nothing happens but decay.”
George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
