"G K Chesterton", a fool for five minutes, addictions, afternoon and morning, being in a hurry, Don Eberly, getting enough, John Courtney Murray, Mortimer Zuckerman, Roger Olson, truth matters - but. . ., when your mind goes blank, who is the rich person?
Concise and profound – a combination that is hard to beat. Ponder the following, practice the truth of as many as you can, and honor God with the results.
- Do not be in a hurry to tie what you cannot untie.
- Graciousness is to examine what is said, not him who speaks.
- God gives the nuts but he does not crack them.
- A guest sees more in an hour than the host in a year.
- He is rich who owes nothing.
- Being intelligent and being kind are not either-or but both-and qualities.
- Forgive, daily, those who caused the wounds that keep you from wholeness.
- He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.
- He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
- Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again. (Mortimer Zuckerman)
- A person is foolish not to be what he can be because he can’t be what he wants to be.
- If your mind goes blank, don’t forget to turn off the sound.
- The vast majority of moral problems that trouble us cannot be eradicated by law. (Don Eberly)
- It is not substance that makes one an addict, but the need to escape from reality. Thus, recovery is much more than giving up the addictive agent.
- The law, mindful of its nature, is required to be tolerant of many evils that morality condemns. (John Courtney Murray)
- There are two ways to get enough. One is to accumulate more and more. The other is to need less. (G.K. Chesterton)

- Sometimes a handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.
- Everyone is a volume if you know how to read them.
- The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.
