Author Quotes

The infinite expanse of the universe, its growth through immeasurable periods of time, the boundless range of its changes, and the rational order that pervades it all, seems to demand an infinite intelligence behind its manifestations.

There is no real exellence in all this world which can be separated from right living.

Be a life long or short, its completeness depends on what it was lived for.

Whatever you attempt, go at it with spirit. Put some in!

Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.
