Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. ~ Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

On life's journey Faith is nourishment, Virtuous deeds are a shelter, Wisdom is the light by day and Right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him; If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom.

Aramaic Bible in Plain English ~ He that is patient is very wise and he that is impatient, very foolish

To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven. ~ Ecclesiastes

For Those Who Want A Revolution Some Ancient But Still Good 'Advice' ~ And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?

From The Book Of Proverbs: As water reflects the face, so one's life reflects the heart.
