Trust and Wisdom

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle.
I just wish he wouldn't trust me so much.
Mother Teresa

Just keep swimming.

Misery loves company; it's also fond of entertaining fools.

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
William Shakespeare

Wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is doing it.
David Star Jordan

Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking.
There are too many people who think that the
only thing that's right is to get by,
and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.
J.C. Watts

Are right and wrong convertible terms,
dependant upon popular opinion?
William Lloyd Garrison

I thank Thee first because I was never robbed before;
second, because although they took my purse
they did not take my life;
third, because although they took my all,
it was not much;
and fourth because it was I who was robbed,
and not I who robbed.
Matthew Henry
