"Sit in the presence of the Lord every moment of your life, as you think of Him and recollect Him in your heart. Otherwise, when you only see Him after a period of time, you will lack freedom of converse with Him, out of shame; for great freedom of converse is born out of constant association with Him. Constant association with fellow-beings involves the body, whereas when it is with God, it involves the soul's meditation and the offering of prayers. As a result of its great intensity, this meditation is sometimes mingled with wonder: 'The heart of those who seek the Lord rejoice.' Seek His Face through repentance at all times-and you shall be sanctified by the holiness of His Face. You shall be purged clean of your wickedness. Run to the Lord, all who are wicked; He forgives wickedness and removes sins."----St Isaac of Syria (also called St Isaac of Nineveh)
"In all my perplexing trial and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light." General Robert E. Lee
"Duty is the sublimest word in our language. Duty in all things. You can not do more. You should never wish to do less." General Robert E. Lee
"Those who expect to reap the benefits of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it." Patrick Henry
"Sometimes God sends me moments in which I am utterly at peace. In those moments I have constructed for myself a creed in which everything is clear and holy for me. Here it is: to believe that there is nothing more beautiful, more profound, more sympathetic, more reasonable, more courageous and more perfect than Christ; and not only is there nothing but I tell myself in jealous love that never could there be."----Fyodor Dostoevsky
"My soul is like an altar Light, A holy fire, flickering in ruby glass In perpetual adoration."---Emily G. White
